    Looking at two used machines from 2003. I was going to buy the 1s180 but found a nice ls190 for just a touch more. I'm worried the 190 will be to big and i also worry the 180 will be to small and regret not getting the 190.

    I was going to put counterweights on what ever I buy.

    We do mainly hardscaping and push snow with it in the winter.

    Any opinions from guys with experience is greatly appreciated.

    My advice is flip a coin. A recent scientific study was conducted and it showed that when people are faced with a difficult decision, they opted to flip a coin to help them choose. Even if it was a life or death decision.

    True fact.

    My inlaws who are farmers have had several 190's that I have spent some time in, my opinion is that a 190 would be waay to big physically for a landscaper. Hell, the 180 would be considered to big for most. Also keep in mind that the 190 might need a deck over trailer to be hauled.
