I'm considering the purchase of a used JD 1145. The intended use is for personal residential. I mow approximately 3 acres, about 25 pine/fir trees (a pain to mow by with my garden tractor), and about 20 other trees. What is the cut quality like with this mower with or without mulch attachment? I would add the mulcher. The owner also has a cab & blower along with the 4WD is very appealing for our winters.
