    How has the mower held up for you over the years? Is the engine powerful enough for heavy growth on weeklys?

    These have been great. We still run 8 of them. We have upgraded them to the tweel wheels and the efi Kohler engines. JD has made numerous upgrades through the years. We usually sell 4 and buy 4 new units each Spring. But overall we are happy with them, they cut great and we dont have many problems with them.

    How much do they run roughly? Dealer has one with 70 hours on it for $7,500

    We are paying around 10,000$ each with tweel tires, efi engine and we get the green fleet discount.

    Is there a noticeable difference in power between the carb and efi? I've never had an EFI mower before
