Ok, I am comapring the following two machines: LCT with the 44" deck and the Kohler 18 engine. LHP with the 44" deck and the Kawasaki 17 engine. I believe that the difference in price is about $800. I am just wondering what am I getting for my money? I know that a big difference is the fact that an UltraVac is available for the LHP and not the LCT. What else am I getting for the money?
