    Are you going to be doing the majority of your work discharging or mulching?

    You REALLY need to demo the cut/mulch quality of several you may be considering, before buying a Lesco.

    Just my opinion folks.

    rustic goat,

    yes i plan to just be discharging, do you not recommend the lesco because it doesnt mulch well or is there something else with the machine that you can share.

    I have 2 of them, except there painted yellow, there cub Tanks, one is a 60" and the other is a 72". Probably will be adding a 54" soon. They cut/stripe as good as any out there. I don't know about mulching with them as I do not mulch, but they offer mulch kits for them. You won't be sorry. :)

    Using solely to discharge, will probably be fine. I do almost all mulch, Lesco's 'mulch kit' is a joke. IMO
    There are a lot of them out there, just wondering if you've done close eyeball exam of the brands you've mentioned, and/or demo driven/cut with them.
    Also, critique the shop/service department of the various dealers/brands.
