    Default Buying advice JD vs Cub

    I am looking to replace my 13 year old toro 16 hp 38" lawn tractor.

    I have 1.1 acres with a lot of hills trees and leaves. The lot is terraced with 3 levels and pretty steep hills between levels.

    The toro had its original hydro tranny replaced under warranty after only 1 year and now 11 years later it is ready to go.

    The first question I have is JD vs Cub. I am thinking 46-50" Deck is good but I need a bagging system.

    Is the cub cadet direct shaft all what it is built up to be? I am most concerned with the tranny as I cheaped out the first time but don't want to spend the money for the 500 series that the JD dealer wants to sell me.

    Am I better off with an older JD as I hear the newer ones are not as good. I am not looking at the lowes or HD JDs as I know they are lesser in quality.

    I am ok with spending the $5k to get the right matching but it needs to be the right machine.

    Any advise is greatly appreciated. Thanks and happy new year!

    Do what you want but it is much better to have one thread rather than multiple threads to deal with. I just posted on your other thread in JD buying and pricing.
