    I took in a 5023 this year as trade in, it wasn't for me.
    The 23hp Kohler was ok, but the overall construction left much to be desired.
    If you have any hilly ground you will be sorry, especially wet.
    The controls were no where near as responsive as my Walkers.
    Deck housing was thinner.
    Too many nuts, bolts and screws, not enough welds.
    Was able to send to an Illinois flat-ground farmer.
