Well, you can buy one 10-year John Deere for WAY too much
money, or three 5-year el cheapos from Lowe's/HD for the
same amount. (Inflation considered; and those three would
likely still cost less than the one JD.)
Skip the automatic transmissions completely, but make sure the
clutch is a separate pedal from the brake. (Today, most
of them have the throttle on the "dashboard" - and enviro rules
require running flat out. I'd like to choke the idiot who
designed the "clutch/brake". Nothing is so much fun like going
to fifth gear - and always from a dead stop....)
Not sure what 'new' means; woudl you consider a used mower? If so, your
choice will be a bit more limited. I do think used is a good option.

chipper! Love the Land Shark!)
I dunno, I have this vision of the end of Fargo...........
Anyway, if I were looking for a good used mower I would certainly be
browsing the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill (and Cary too!) Craig's List
