Re: Possible Future Purchase.... XT-2 W/42" Deck
I've killed a used K46. It will last you a good while, but keep in mind that it is designed NOT to last forever, and NOT to be repaired. An upgrade axle costs as much as a new LT, $2,000. My dad has a very similar (maybe the same) LT, and it's a pretty good machine. Turning is almost as tight as your RER, easy steering, easy to climb on and off. Definitely get the "optional" bumper, as those hoods on every brand are the first thing to get broken, and they are $$$. You will love the LED headlights, and probably hate the nanny-mode reverse safety feature, but you can turn it off. Find or make a seat cover, as the plastic doesn't weather well.
