There's a considerable price difference as well.
But I don't see it as a "quality" difference. It's more of a "get the
right tool for the job" sort of thing. If you need a workhorse to do
all sorts of light "tractor" chores, look at the dealership models. If
all you need is a lawnmower, the Lowe's/Home Depot Deeres match up
well quality wise with other Lawn "Mowing" Tractors.
At least, I'm pretty happy so far with my 190C.

For one acre lot you need only a good strong tractor, Do yourselfr a
favor and stay away from Craftsman, Craftsman is not a very strong
machine and things break all too often. I lived in the catskills of
New York state and had two acres to mow and I got an older simplicity
machine and this lasted me years and years and I wish I took it with
me to NM but I was stupid and bought my Craftsman and it fell apart in
a few months. Zero turn is a nice machine but for one acre it would
be a waste. Simplicity is a steel machine not tin and strong spindles
and belt drive system. make sure you get ewither a Kohler engine or
Briggs and Stratton engine and no overhead valve systems for they have
loads of headaches yet.
I agree with the Craftsman being cheap but not with the ZTR thing. I
have found you only put about 1/2 the hrs. on them so thay last twice as
long and do a better mowing job so the are worth a little more.
