    I'm looking at getting a 100" front cut mower made by Lastec. They offer their deck on their own Lastec Tractor, but will also put it on a Kubota F3680, John Deere 1565, or a Toro 7210. Locally, the Toro & Lastec dealers are not very big and would not even be able to service a machine this size. So, I am looking at either the Kubota or the John Deere. Your vote & feedback is appreciated!

    I see your list of equipment contains both JD and Kubby, so you must be familiar with both brands. I guess I'd just choose the one that feels the best to you, and has as the most features that you are wanting, since they're both good machines.
