Ok, I know we've had this discussion before, but before I plunk down over 4 grand I just wanted to make the best decision. I'm not sure I will buy either of these machines, I'm just really impressed with the speed and time savings one of them could provide. So if any of you guys bought one early this season and have anything new to add I would appreciate it. I will be looking at a 36" most likely. I already have a 60" Dixie Chopper to take care of the big stuff. I will be using this smaller mower for islands on commercial properties and fenced back yards.
