    Diesels ROCK. Longer service life and bottomless torque=highly productive machine.

    yeah,but i'd rather smell like gas than diesel.all i keep envisioning is it reminds me of being gehind a tractor trailer on the road,smelling all the crap.i wasnt sure if the diesel mowers would give off the same fumes.i wouldnt want to be cutting all day with a mask on.

    The fumes aren't what I'd be worried about, it's all the dust and pollen getting stirred up that you'll breath in without a mask. That crap tore me up yesterday. I'll be wearing a mask today for sure. cough cough..... :cry:

    yeah, the prices are to high. I got mine a year ago(turf tiger) for $8700 new with kohler command 27hp a/c 61" deck. I have not seen a need for more power then what I have now. maybe the DFI kaw, you you want a little better gas per hour. Thats going to be almost $1500 more in cost, which could be made at the pump if gas goes high again.

    Not in the market for one but, the dealer down here had one in the show room floor, 28 Cat TT and I asked him: "How much". Almost 17k:dizzy:
