Why did this require starting a new thread? :dunno:
Would this work for ya?Im going to go with the FEL.
Sarge.. what do you suggest then. Don't say a lawn tractor please because I already have a nice one. It just a takes forever to cut the lawn, its getting beaten up. (read earlier posts)
Picking out the right Simplicity unit gets easy at this point. If you pass on the Legacy (more unit than you need IMHO), then you're left with Broadmoor, Conquest, or Prestige. You know you're gonna need a fabricated deck and that is available on each of these lines. They all have the same chassis so really you just need to decide how heavy duty of a transaxle you need (I think they would all be fine for you probably), whether you want a limited slip or full locking rear end, and then choose creature comforts like hydro lift, etc. if you value those types of conveniences. They all use pretty much the same attachments.Platinum, it seems you and I have reached the same conclusion.
You are absolutely right. I think I need to figure out just HOW MUCH I NEED? Thats the real question isn't it? Before you know it you can spend a lot of money and have a huge tractor which you don't need.
I have my demos tomorrow and will probably provide some feedback on what this all means to me.
Your also right on the Regent lol. It's just that I can't see physically any simplicity mowers where I live to to answer the question of whether or not a conquest, prestige etc.. will meet my needs and last a long time
I have my demos tomorrow and will be able to hopefully answer a few more lingering questions, but after that it's time to let it all sit in and reevaluate.
Thanks all for being so patient and providing your thoughts.
:ditto::ditto:IMO, this is what you should be looking for;
'11 Prestige with 54" Deck, Blower, Cab, weights & chains and power-steering
