Problem is the current 42" deck is rusted through in 4 different places and it doesnt turn worth a darn. I currently have the plow mounted to it, which is a pain in the ass to change. Thought now was a good time to switch! I'll keep the Cub for plowing in the winter.
As I have been looking at Simplicity tractors, i really want one but it seems the bagging systems are expensive as crap. The turbo bagger are almost $1000. My current Cub doesnt shred the grass worth a darn, but I know the Simplicity def will. Im trying to decide if i really need a bagger.. or mulch... or just be careful with the side discharge!
Im capped at $3000...
