I still prefer the IS3000, so I bought one with 425 hours on it last year with a 61" deck and 27hp Kohler. I have had nothing but problems with this Kohler and problems with the mower too. Several repairs have costed $400-$500! The downtime was a problem too. I do have other mowers but getting the broken mower to and on the trailer, taking it to the Dealer, and going to get another mower has costed a lot of time. So I'm pretty disappointed with my IS3000 right now, but the IS3100 like you bought is a great mower and the Vanguard 30hp performs very well.
Out of curiosity, what did you like about the 3000 compared to the 3100?
Thanks, Stan
