    I have been using a husquavarna 46" 21 hp i bought used for fire clearance jobs. I am needing to get a new one this year and I know that lowes sells a 2 year warranty for that mower it costs 1700 for the mower probably another 2 or 3 hundred for the warranty. I hit alot of gopher holes and sticks ect, was wondering if anyone could help me find a tough lawn tractor for this or if I stick with the warranty. lowes is pretty good with their warranties i don't really want to get involved with home depot warranty. I've been looking at the snapper nxt2752 for about 3000 didnt know if it could take a beating or not?

    Sounds like you need a brush mower more then a finish mower.
