I just got rid of a JD D140 that was starting not to pull the hill in my backyard. It lasted 2 summers or about 20 hours. After some research I figured out it's the transmission. I keep seeing the k-66 is the trans to have. I'm welling to spend up to $5 to $6,000 if I need to. I only have about 1 acre. There are no trees only grass. I don't need to do anything but mow with it. I don't care what brand. Just want a reliable riding mower that can handle the hill. Only thing a want is a bagger. Thanks for any advice.
JMO, Husqvarna GT54LS. Around $3300. with a K66 and electronic locking diff. I have seen it mow the hills on my BIL's lot, and they are steep. Was so impressed I bought one myself. Gives a nice cut with the armor stamped deck.
