    Ok now evreyone step back and take a breath cause i'm probly going to strike a nerve of someone. I was just wondering what evreyones opinion was on if there is some over rated mowers out there. First name that comes to mind for me is John Deere. Is it realy worth it? And I don't mean just Deere just wich ones do you think are over rated? anyways anxious to see what you thinks :blob3:

    I agree with you on John Deere. I live in town that is 6 miles away from one of their factories the makes mowers. Alot of the people that live here work at the factory. I'm the only LCO in the area that doesn't have a Deere. The lawns mowed with Deere are not striped and always have clumps of grass. Lets just say my Hustler puts them to shame.

    JD HD45, biggest piece of cr$# I've ever had. Homeowner quality stamped deck and hydro's have never worked well for me either. Switched to a couple of scags, now run nothing but Exmark.
