I know this is a commericial forum and I really am not looking for a commericial mower. I am looking for info from the pros on what they feel is the best ride on mower to mow my home yard that is a little less than an acre, but it has hills, etc.. not flat at all. I was looking at the John Deere L100 series and the Craftsman mowers, what do you guys think is the best mower for your money? I wanted to keep it under $1,500, closer to 1K would be preferable. Thanks, and I hope this post isn't voilating the rules since it's not for commercial use, I just couldn't find a good forum online and I figure the pros would be the best ones to ask these questions anyhow..
