Well,
the Grasshopper place has a contractor's open house this Saturday.
Hopefully I can get my claws on a good used trade in of any kind!
If not I'll stick with the Dixie Chopper -60"/ 22.5hp/ 1300hrs.
Seems to be the best deal so far, the only drawback beeing that the next Dixie dealer is a ways away, or I would've bought it already.
Whatever I buy - the first thing I'll do is pour about 200lbs of fertilizer on the lawn, so I can show it who the boss is this summer :-)

personly i would buy something new, you never know what could go wrong with something used, you don't know if they kept good care of it, how often the oil was changed , and everything else that could go worng. just my opinion.

I agree Josh, if we're talking about $2k - $3k difference, I may as well go new and get piece of mind. I really was looking at machines that cost $9k - $10k new and are for sale for around $3k; that may be worth it.
