    does it have a bagger?

    I want a smaller mower with a Briggs.....in "commercial" that leaves me with Sarlo, Bunton, and Lawnboy

    I was really considering the Sarlo and a Lawnboy.......i have seen the Deere homeowners like that one and considered it as well.....in my area Deere has a real strong rep. so i fugured buy it and if it wears out too fast just go in there and point to the green and the Deere lable and just start bitching!!!!

    after a while i think they would do something for me just to get rid of me and get me to stop slamming them...I already don't like the dealers service here so I don't care if I annoy them more using a "Deere" product commercially

    I own a mtd pro, it is almost identical to the john deere except it a Kawasaki engine. I don't use it very often but the carb on the Kawasaki is amazing half pull every time. I am a little concerned about the plastic wheels.

    ALL equipment fall under the "if you take care of it, it will take care of you"
    You should get a couple of good years out of it,3-5. I think it biggies drawback it that you cant change the oil from under the mower!

    I have one for a year.....except a belt that came off, no problems.. Drive adj lever is kind of touchy. Bagger works great..nothing left.
