I have around 3/4 acre to 1 acre to mow. I am planning on getting the 42" MFT in the spring. I would get the 36" MFT, but l like having a few extra inches of deck sticking out for trimming purposes. I found a guy selling a 2006 44" Fastrak with the 18hp Honda and a mulch kit for $3600. I will be the first to admit that this mower is probably more than I need. I do like the option of being able to tow and add accessories like a snow blade to it. I am only considering the Fastrak cause can it cheaper than what a new MFT will cost in the spring. Please chime in with advice, recommendations, etc. Thank you.
