The mower was still in a crate, making it hard for me to inspect. I like the large, solid rubber tires & anti-scalp roller.
    Thanks. It is good to know the company isn't new. I looked at the mower through a chainlink fence, and it looked good to me. And it was $100 cheaper at the Marianna TSC. I like top of the line goods as much as the next fellow, but I like it better if I get them at my price. Just looking, I can't see $600 or $700 worth of difference between the mowers.

Cost to replace bearings and seals in the spindles was $28 each. It mows great now, if may get a paint job this winter. Just a testament that parts are available out there.
    Thanks mudcat. While I have never run a King Kutter mower, I know someone who does. It seems to be a good mower. If the Cl brand is built by them, that is reassuring. And with the TSC just 20 miles away in Marianna, blades and parts shouldn't be a problem to get.

    I hadn't done the math for the tax until now, so let me revise the numbers.

    LP 5' $1990, total cost. Cl 5' $1504, total cost. $486 difference.

    LP 6' $2300. Cl 6' $1720. $580 difference.

    Not the 600 and 700 I was thinking, but still enough to push me toward the Cl.

    Same here....90" Sitrex behind my LS with 38.5hp at the PTO, and you barely know it's there. I bought mine at auction for $1k, threw new belts, and blades on it $75, and it cuts great!

    One point I wanted to make was that the weight made a big difference with the decks on my B7500. It handled the 428# Caroni with ease and the 652# Landpride was what I'd consider max if the yard has hills or you wait too long between mowings.

    I own both Caroni and Landpride and truly believe the Landpride is a higher quality mower than the Caroni. It wouldn't have been worth an extra $600 to me to get a LP. The Caroni is certainly not substandard and has put up with a lot of abuse. I was considering a 6' Caroni and the dealer offered me a new LP FDR1672 for $1,795. I went with the LP.

    I have no first-hand experience with King Kutter so can't comment on them.

    That bush hog looks new. I will check the local papers, Craig's List, etc.... Just to see if a great deal can fall in my lap. I want to buy within a week and a half, if I buy new. My credit card is offering double points, so if I'm going to spend the money, now is the time to do it.

    My only hill is about twenty feet over three hundred yards, so that is not a concern. At this point I think I have decided to get a 6' mower and use the 3930. It's just which 6' mower. Sowell Tractor priced the 1672 at $2300. If I could find one for what you paid, I would jump on it.

    Just found a 72" LP in Pensacola for $700 on craigslist. Looks clean. My brother in law said he would help me out in getting a mower home. I wonder if he meant five hours seat time.

    Just be cautious on used... Check out the gearbox, could be real costly if someone is selling their problem.
    Thanks,
