How do you like the Deere? I see those for sale around here on craigslist for under $1000 all the time. I've contemplated buying one as I could really use a 48" walk behind, but figured there must be a reason they are so cheap. I bought a $800 Lesco a few years back and the engine ended up blowing after 50 hours... don't want another repeat of that.

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
