30 HP Briggs, 61'' deck. Should be here soon! I looked at a ton of models and settled on this for a few reasons: - I wanted a diesel model, but priced a Ferris 5100 z $ 19,500!!!! - JD 997 was $15,000. - There is a Simplicity dealer 3 miles from where I live and I already have a walk behind that I am very happy with. - Suspension! - Cut quality. All Simplicity models seem to have excellent cut quality. Lets hope things remain the same. - I am only worried about fuel usage, but hey... compromise must occur. Ill post some pics when the machine arrives. Price was less than 9k. Thats 10 grand less than the Ferris w/ CAT diesel. Only a few weeks until mowing begins!
