Only a few days into tractor ownership, so it's hard to compare with others as this is my first tractor. I will mention that after browsing and shopping around for a couple months, to me it appears the LS line of tractors arguably offers the best overall value in a tractor. when considering the price, warranty, and quality (the overall package), I'd recommend taking a look at LS. As time goes on and more LS tractors get into the field I'm sure they will develop a large following.
So far, all is well. Runs like a top, seems to have good power and, have to admit, I really like the hydro tranny. Like I said, all relatively new to me so as I get more time on my machine I'll update everyone.
