    I've been checking out two prospective riding mowers. A John Deere L130 and a Husqvarna 21/48. The deere is $2100.00 and the Husq is $1800.00. The Deere has a 48" cut with a 23hp Koehler Command engine. The Husq has a 48" cut and a 21hp Briggs and Stratton v-twin ohc vanguard engine. All of the other features are pretty much the same. What do you guys think.

    I'd personally buy neither. For about the same money you can get an Exmark or Bobcat 36 inch walk behind. It will hold up much better and the time saved not having to trim with a 21 along the edges will be quite noticeable. Make sure you demo whatever you buy beforehand.
