    Classen split drive. I paid $2000 I think for a 26"?? wide. Not sure about the width but it was the widest self propeled they offer.

    plugr is the way to go. I have had the classen and there is no comparison. Plugr is much easier to use, IMO.

    I am a fan of the Classen split drive myself but hopefully you will get some other opinions as well.

    what about ryan and how many pluggers should i look for, the last one i used i rented and it only had four, man did it take awhile to do a lawn, i mowed half an acre for sixty bucks and it took me an hour an a half.
