What kind of cutting are you going to do with it?
Just grass in your own fields? Mowing rough brush and fields (unknown) for hire?
I originally bought a light duty (they call it "medium duty", but it's not) Titan that I had intended to only use at my own place (for grass). Well, job creep, whatever you want to call it, and I started using it to mow for hire, unknown fields for unknown customers. Long story short, my deck has certainly taken a rough beating. It's taken it (so far), but it looks like it's been through the war. It still works, gear box, blades and stump jumper are fine, but it looks like 5 miles of bad road (cosmetically). If I had it to do over again, for mowing for hire, I would have selected a heavy duty unit. I've been looking at the EA one recently, and I may pull the trigger on that this summer (we'll see what kind of jobs I end up with).
