I got a Deere LT series (i think) for less than 3 grand. I mow 2 acres with it pretty quick. I opted to get a 42 in deck which is plenty.

I have the john deere LT110. Does fine on my 3/4 acre bermuda. I have no hills though. And can be had for $1599. Buy a John deere and save the other money for hookers and blow.

based on their prices i would only have enough money left for weed and jacking off.

Check out the forums here http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/index.php

Mostly compact tractors but the have a lawn and garden area also.

If you are only going to be mowing then the 3200 series may be overkill for you. All the lawn care businesses use a nice zero turn for mowing only duty because they really are the best for just mowing. But if you want to use some attachments like a plow blade, snow blower, tiller etc... then that would be a good choice. The 3200 has a nice cast iron rear end and is a true hydro. I also like the swiveling deck wheels and the shaft drive to the deck which means no belts to replace.

Myself when I wear out the Deere I have now and the older cub I use for garden work I want to buy a 3235 or get the 5200 series with a loader.

i am mainly getting the 3200 for the diff-lock. i just want something that will get the yard mowed and hold up for 15 yrs. if it will run a cultivator well it may get some use for that as well. tractorbytel.com is the only site i have found and, like you said, it is mainly focused on compact tractors. thanks anyway.

I have about 2.5 acres to mow. Got a Simplicity Regent w/bagger. Hadn an old 80's Ariens. Test drove a Simplicity Regent, Simplicity Broadmoore (bigger) and two Husqvarna's. Regent was for me. You can go at quite a clip I got the bagger too.

Heard some bad things about the watered down residential zero turns. Tend to tear up the lawn.
