    You have a point on the deck size. The extra 6 inches of cut speeds things up quite a bit. My mowing gets done 30 minutes quicker with the Massey as opposed to the old Cub Cadet I used to own. Even with the FEL on.

    Don't be fooled by the 1860 though, they are still a very good machine for the average homeowner.

    I totally agree!

    I think the OP is convinced he does not want a FEL. We all know how useful they are, but if the landscape is done its done. Personally, I would prefer removing snow with a fel rather than a front blade, but that just me!
    Carefull what you aim for, Aim for nothing and you will achieve it with amazing accuracy.

    FEL's are for more than just landscaping though. They can be used for firewood, rocks, mulch, limbs and sticks while mowing, carrying heavy items from the pickup/car to the 'back 40', burying rowdy neighbors OOPS, did I say that out loud?

    Yes i never stop finding new ways to use it. Like this weeks when it was utilized to lift my parts car with a blown head up onto jack stand so i could pull the starter. -2013-01-22_18-13-30_235-a

    You could probably go right through the door and lift the whole car if you wanted. I lifted a building with mine so I could move it.

    Another great place to get info is TractorData.com - information on all makes and models of tractors. Every tractor made is tested by the University of Nebraska. Great place for info on any make.

    Roger your probably right about lifting the car i sometimes wish i also had a set of 72" pallet forks. Another Time i was out mowing the trails and i had a small branch pop up and remove the drive belt my my zero turn. Didn't feel like trying to work on it in the grass with the mosquito's as bad as they were that season. FEL to the rescue


    Again if you have an FEL you will use it no mater what the lift capacity. The uses are endless.

    kubota does not generally participate in this testing so you can't get them in NE or get the test data

    You are normally correct, but just recently they have tested a very large number of the Kubotas making it much easier to compare with other brands.
