Bought a John Deere Z225 - was on sale for $2300 and with the coupon came to $2070
also bought the Echo PAS split boom system with Trimmer, edger and pole Pruner - Just about $600 with the attachments and discounts
Mowed my lawn in 20 min!!!
You will not catch grief for it. You bought what you wanted and maybe with in your budget. That is probably the better of the box store mowers and should be good for you needs. I see no reason why you could not get 5-10 years out of that machine? I imagine that you have about a half acre if you did it in 20 minutes? Just be sure to winterize properly, keep you air filter clean and most importantly keep your fuel fresh! Good luck with your mower and share some pics in the Homeowner picture page, I think it is floating around on the 1st or 2nd page in this forum. Someone just posted pics the other day.
