Parts of our county are very rural and many of the local farmers still use JD agricultural-grade equipment, but in the residential areas you see very few JD models. Most homeowners are using Toro, Husqvarna, Cub Cadet and Hustler with a few other brands sprinkled in. I've owned a JD lawn tractor in the past, but despite following the scheduled maintenance program, once the warranty expired it was just one thing after another. After spending a couple of grand on various repairs, I threw in the towel and gave the damn thing away and hired a lawn service. Now that I'm retired, I have plenty of time and considering what I would pay to have someone come out and cut/trim a 3 acre lot, it wouldn't take too long to recoup the cost of buying a high-end residential or entry-level commercial machine. In the meantime, I'll keep researching and looking around.
