Subject says it all, almost- I only have a 100x300 lot, but the 3 hours a
week with the walk-behind is proving hell on my allergies. I haven't tripped
across any non-junk riding mowers in the garage sales, and none of the
close-by dealers appear to carry used ones. So, what entry-level mower hits
the sweet spot for price and reliability? The $900 ones all seem to be
cheaply built, and look to come out of the same factory, no matter what
brand name- just different colors and decals, and maybe a different shaped
top shroud. CU, according to second hand reports, recommends the 1xx series
John Deere models, and a buddy at work seems to like his. However, those
seem to start around 1400-1500 bucks.
I know, I know, wrong time of year- I shoulda bought last fall, when they
were clearing space for the snow blowers.
