Fulldraw  , if it's any kind of a hill , you really want to go up and down . A tractor can really only go down  , up you could flip . A pusher is hard to keep in a horizontal line .

x2 in Deere. I have a 2 year old 350. I have a 20 year old 325 that got retired up to do the cabin. That thing has been through the ringer and still runs. I  mowed down 2 acres of corn stalks (food plot) with it every year for least 5 years and its still kicking. Deere will last you forever with minimal maintenance. Again there is big difference with big box stores. I would never get one with a Briggs or Kohler engine

I too highly recommend Honda. My recommendation comes only after many years trying other makes and models and being disappointed. Every type of Honda engine I have owned just goes on and on without problems.

I just bought a all wheel drive Husqvarna  . Rear bagger. It's  the first pusher I've owned that has a variable throttle. I am able to go wide open or slow from the AWD control. Quiet and a 1 pull start. So far so good.

I bought a Cub Cadet XT2 LX46 at the beginning of last summer and love it!  Like people have stated before the ones in big box stores aren’t the same as the ones bought at a dealer. The XT1 is the box store model with smaller engine and a narrower cutting width. XT2 came with a 24 h.p. Kohler engine, better tires, better spindles and a few other upgrades. It cost about $800 more than the box store model but well worth it. Box store models are probably fine but likely won’t last as long. Bought mine online from a local place and they set it up, filled the gas tank and delivered it for free.

I have to buy a new riding lawnmower. Anyone have an opinion on which one to get or stay away from?

Is there one over the other you guys would recommend for an intermediate hill? It's about 1/4 acre, slope at it's worst spot is roughly 35-45 degrees i'd estimate? Or is it more key the way you cut than the actual machine itself? I was looking at one of the new Husqvarna -- 724CC hydrostatic transmission.. 46".. any suggestions?
