Well, as some of you know, we bought a lesco on evil-bay for just under 2K, brand new in crate. it retails for 3600 or so, so it was a good deal. got it home, un-crated it, filled fluids, and broke the engine in for a bit. The next day, we used it for 25 lawns. It was fantastic. It cut really well, drove well, and striped well. the hydros could use a little more power, but other than that, it seems to be a great mower. I was very impressed with the way lawns looked after using it. There's some more left, if any of you are in the area and need a decent, cheap mower, check them out.
