    Well, I waffled and thought about and struggled with the decision, but I finally bit the bullet on a new mower.

    I'll be taking delivery on a new John Deere Quik Trac Stander today. 23hp/54" deck. It will replace my 60" fixed deck hydro Bob-cat. I think I got a pretty good deal at $6,050. I figure I was better off buying at this price than to take the price increase hit in the spring.

    For you Wright boys, I went with J.D. because of GREAT (KOW) and local dealer support. I also like the easily adjustable deck height.

    Yes, I demo'd it too. :)

    Yeah, waffled. Went back and forth, couldn't decided -- waffled.

    No, avatar won't help -- I know that. I wish there was something that could help them with the friggin' Orioles, though. :rolleyes:

    good idea on the pricing going up mark....hope you enjoy the machine. I bought the Cyclone Rake today with every accessory and commercial upgrade available $2,400 in all. Can't wait to use it this fall, leaves will finally be tolerable! I am going door to door in the neighborhoods I already do a lot in and offering cleanups now like $200 a house or something. get a couple friends together and do that for a couple weekends and she'll be paid for

    Well, chevyman as you know I don't agree with you on most of your price stuff, but.... I am interested to hear your review of the Cyclone Rake after you've had a chance to use it.

    Maybe some pics of it in action, like before, during and after pics.

    I've given a lot of thought about getting one, but I'm just not sure my lawns are big enough to justify it.

    As you probably guessed, I don't have any friends.

    Hey! I finally convinced myself to make the plunge and get this new machine, and you're stealing my thunder over some glorified rake?!?! :nono:

    Me and chevyman have had our differences too. It was probably a planned plot on his part.

    :D
