i posted this thread last week http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=320646 i have found a cub cadet with 196 hours asking 2950, thinking of trying to get it for 2500. Any negatives on this mower? I am having trouble finding much reviews on this one. I do not do too much commercial mowing yet, mostly small resi's. But my own property has about 1-2 acres of grass to cut, and thinking with this mower i could try to pick up a couple of 1-2 acre lots too.
