Just wondering what engines you guys liked. Trucks too.
Spend the extra cash and buy diesel when or where ever you can. It reminds me of the "belt vs hydro" debate.
Diesel all the way, and you will LOVE the smell
Do you mean Diesel trucks or mowers? I am not sure I can justify the price for a mower unless it was a Kubota. I am afraid the mower would fall apart around the diesel. It is unlikely that the hydros and many other parts would survive. I would prefer to trade every couple years and have the most advanced design, and a mower under warrentee. If you plan on keeping a mower forever, and you are positive it is the right mower, maybe diesel would be a good choice. I am not that confident in my ability to pick a mower and be happy with it.
If we are talking trucks I think its worth it. I am in the market for a newer used Dump this year. I am planning to buy diesel if I can. I think it is worth the investment.
2002 Diesel Gator
2002 Chevy Duramax
2003 New Diesel Mower - still deciding which one
Shady Brook - Get the JD Diesels - the tractor and trany (hydrostatic) will go at least 10,000 hrs - I know of noone and some have had the hydrostatic JD tranies since the 70's and they never go bad. - The JD tractor 455 type have a frame as big as a pickup truck - cast front ends with 1" spindles etc etc.
Real trucks don't have spark plugs!!!!!
I run 8 diesel mowers and 0 gas. Just ordered a 2003 with the Duramax. Won't ever consider a gas motor. Worth the extra $$$
I have a 2002 f-250 diesel, would never buy another gasser, my opinion though, great fuel milage and pulling power.
