Anyone that doubts a Tank has either run the cheap homeowner Cub models, or went into it with a biased view.
Expecially for that kind of a price difference, AS LONG AS it is an actual M48 and not a "Recon" or one of the other homeowner models, there is no question or doubt in my mind I'd buy the Tank.
Actually, where are you located and where is the machine? If you're not interested, I sure am!
I would be interested also except it has a 48" deck.
I use 60's only and smaller 36 and 48 walkbehinds.
I do have a 52 or 54 Lesco widetrack with a Kawasaki 19, it doesn't get used much since I got my first Z several years ago.
One more thing for anyone reading this....
As long as we're comparing commercial mower to commercial mower, I don't think there are any really bad mowers out there.
Just differences that make one more suitable to a particular user.
