    I will be replacing my 1987 Wheel Horse 416 in the coming weeks as it has begun to show signs of aging. I mow approx 2 acres of lawn a week, most of the area is reasonably flat (flattened by a bull dozer years ago), with one or two areas of moderate hills (steep enough that I have to mow and down, not across). I use a garden cart and a spreader with my tractor from time to time, and have used my current tracors to move fairly large rocks on a sled. I will not be using other aatchments.

    I am considering three options.

    Hustler Fasttrac Z (Honda 20 HP model)

    JD 255

    Club Cadet GT 3204

    Which machine would be the most confortable to mow grass with?

    Which machine would give me the best grass cut?

    Which machine would be the most relaible---free of defects?

    Which machine would be the least difficult to work on myself once the warrenty ends?

    Are there other options I should consider in this price range?

    Any suugestions or answers would be appreciated.
