I should be headed to the dealer tomorrow to pick one up. Thinking real hard about a Sport 42" with a Honda motor. The 48" with a Honda is really, really at the edge of my budget for a mower. I could do a 48" with a Briggs motor but the thought of a high quality motor makes me smile. I have an acre to an acre and a half to mow right now, and sometimes mow the step moms place which is another acre or so. Which means I have tonight to nail down what I want. I just dont see that extra 6" being all that significant. What are others thoughts on the matter?
