    I saw it the other day when looking through a Sears flyer, and can tell you right now, the thing will be a joke. You would be much better off buying a used 32" or 36" Bob-Cat, Scag, eXmark, ect.

    Who cares? Brad said he added a few bigger lawns; so that probably means he had one lawn; and has now tripled his business. At this stage why would he need to drop 5K in something overkill when he can spend 1K on something decent that wouldn't break for a while doing just 3 yards.

    I do agree with procut about finding a good used unit though; especially if there are dealers around you for any of them. A used "good" comm. unit should easily outperform & outlast a "good" new craftsman.

    If you plan on adding more lawns than what you have currently I'd shy away from Sears; but if this is just 3 yards a week for some extra $ do whatever.

    I do hope you guy do know that MTD makes the Craftsman mowers. The same people that make the Cub tank, Troy Bilt tillers, ect.

    (I am not saying that a Craftsman is the same as a Tank)
