    I have decide on a Coatesville Classic XG2703 but now face a new option....

    My dealer has the new 06 model for 7399.00
    He also has a new 05 model for 7199.00

    He said (on the phone) that the ONLY difference between the two models
    was that the 06 model has a electric deck while the 05 model is manual.

    The 200 bucks isn't a deciding factor at all but I like the idea of a manual
    deck simply because that's one less thing to worry about going bad.

    Any advice greatly appreciated....
    Is the deck actually the only difference between the 05/06 Coatesville models?

    There's other changes. I would go with a 06, and I'll tell you why.

    Some of the 05's had a blowout problem with grass, and would leave streaks of grass. It was corrected fast once the problem was found/noticed. The problem is not an issue for newer 05's and 06's.
