For about 14K I can get a JD739 with AWD AWS and a 60" drive over deck. It seems like the setup of the mower would be great, and it's in the price range of the Legacy XL...but has a far better turn radius. The downside to it is it's a 25.5hp Kawasaki. That concerns me, being that I LOVE that 33hp Vanguard in the Legacy. I want a powerful mower that will mow great & mulch grass really well.
