    countax only one that will sweep / pickup wet grass start at 7k for 36 inch cut.driven a walker takes a lot to get used too. have a john deere smallest hydrostatic its ok but you need a sweeper for picking up grass.

    I got a John Deere. I should have shelled out a bit more and got the Hydrostatic but didn't have the funds at the time. They were the best value new ones I could find anywhere. My brother does up trade ins and sells them if you want a decent 2nd hand. Fair prices, and straight up honest descriptions, and if its getting towards end of life he will tell you before you decide whether you want it. He is the one who pointed me to John Deere in the first place. I have had a good run so far with the JD (2 years) and would happily get another JD when the time comes (though that looks to be a long way off yet.)

    hey @Maca49 got some sheep and a ram I can sell you cheaper than a ride on and you also get free meat every year and little effort in keeping lawns short and garden trimmed.

    I'm not sure if they've changed now, but the older John Deeres had crap hydro transmissions, would overheat and loose drive, then they would use the excuse that they were not meant for hills. 1.5k+ for a new transmission. And the paint peels off them in no time, I think they didn't bother with a primer.

    Husqvarna seem to have a good rep.

    I had a Countax that worked well, gave a nice cut and the catcher could be emptied without leaving the seat. I had 1.5 acres of lawn which took 5 hours to cut. I found the mower time good for plotting and scheming various designs for things I was making.
