    Kinda need for info on what you need to do with it. Are you cutting hills, is it open or lots of turns, do you need to change the height frequently, bagged or discharged, just 1 mower, how many hours will you use it in a year, and what are the dealers in less than 1 hour drive?

    A round of Jameson shots and then the rest would go in retirement fund.

    If I recieved $15K right now, I would pay off my Duramax, or invest it. Right now, it's a tough call. I dont like the way the economy is going, so i'm kinda reserved on money i'm spending....:confused:
