    Wanted to get any/all opinions on these 2 mowers. This is for homeowner use on 1.3 acres of grass, riverbank (15 degree slope), tree beds, etc. This is for new sod, to keep it cut down until it's able to have a rider go on it.

    1994 John Deere 1754
    - 17 HP Kawasaki
    - 54" Deck
    - 615 Hours
    - 5 Speed Gear Tranny
    - $1200USD

    1998 John Deere 1748
    - 17 HP Kawasaki
    - 48" Deck
    - 506 Hours
    - 5 Speed Gear Tranny
    - $1200USD

    Haven't seen them yet, dealer says the 1754 is nicer of the 2.

    Thanks.

    Brent.

    I had a 17 hp 54" JD belt drive. It cut good but scalped really bad because the rear axles are so narrow. Otherwise a good machine.
