So I sold my 93 MC 16hp 42 walker mower for $1500 and picked up a 99 MT 20hp w/flip up 48 deck and bigger hopper for $1500. One of the best moves I made this year besides the enclose trailer I also picked up for a great deal. but this MT model is twice the mower of my old MC. Much faster,more power,suction is a lot better,doesn't bog in taller grass or when sucking up leaves. just an all around better mower. I can just imagine what a brand new one is like.
