I love the Deere. Not sure why they are so cheap near you as they are an easy 3500 around here. The only con I have is it's a pull start and the pistols were a little stiff when I first get it, but they have since gotten much easier to squeeze. If you have any more questions feel free to ask. I have the 54" by the way
