The 140 is the best! What are the prices for them so we can see if it is a deal or not.

the 140 is 100.00, the 111 is 75.00 ,the rx75 is 150.00 ,and the gx85 is 75.00.
Definitely DON'T go for the 140.... Instead, tell ME where it is, so I can, um, go do quality control... ya, that's it! :)

Seriously tho, if the 140 runs and the deck turns and it doesn't seem like its doing anything that would indicate its on its last legs (smoking badly, leaking oil out of every seal, not starting well, running poorly) the 140 is pretty much the winner out of that bunch!

2 acres? Definitely the 140 unless there is a ton of obstacles. If you have a hundred trees to go around, then I would................. landscape around them to make the 140 work.
