Ok, I live in a area that is flooded with JD, also have a Cub Cadet dealer in town and also a Toro dealer about 15 miles away with others in farther distances obviously! My question is, what brand model would some of you recommend and also what engine would be best for me? I am getting a 60" no matter what, mower will only be used for cutting, no spring/fall cleanups... it will simply be my timesaver mower and I will use my somewhat older JD 345 tractor style for the 'dirty' work.... Comments/suggestions welcome...... financing options (zero pmts. for extended months will be welcome considering my situation $$) are to be considered part of the equation as well!! I know JD and Toro have pretty good names for themself, anyone out there run a CC Tank 60" cut? Cut quality? Would it be wise to save a few dollars going that route? Honestly, any advice would be greatly appreciated in advance!!!!!
