    king--everything considered......lesco is as much a value as any other unit out there.

    I have run a lesco for years and it has been an outstanding value for me.

    my H/D Lesco is great. Cuts real well and my service guys are good also. Just demo them. Made by the same people as Cub commercial.

    No problems with any of my Lesco equipment. I run belt walkbehinds and Zero turn riders, spreaders, etc etc and haven't had a problem with any of them..

    Well worth the money. I have heard some of the dealers are crappy, but thats an assumption only you can make about your area. :waving:

    Only complaint is on the 52 inch walk beind deck. The thing just does not hold up. After three years the cut was just terrible. Checked everything before taking it to mechanic. Showed me two just about the same age with the same problem. You can push down on the hadles and watch the deck flex. During the off season will be putting a 48 deck on it.
