    Anyone have any comments on a John Deere LT120 lawn tractor for residential and commercial or maybe something better in that price range ( 2,200.00 ). Thanks

    In that price range, I would suggest a fixed deck commercial walk behind. You should be able to get a 32" or a 36" deck belt drive. I have $2600 wrapped up in a Snapper riding mower that I bought when I first started and I'm finally going to sell it and get a nice comm. walk behind. If you don't want to walk, you can just buy a sulky for it.

    As stated, get a commercial walk behind. They manuever better and will cut most lawns faster than a riding tractor.
