    Ok, thats it, ive been through 2 cheapo 80 dollar re-built lawnmowers in the last 2 years. I need something cheap and good. Anyone go throught the lawnmower buying game lately? Besides Big Pappa B and his huge riding lawnmower??? :D Whats a good one to get??? Brand ? Price?

    BTW, theres a guy in town here who has a riding lawnmower for grabs, its a 5 yr old craftsman, he paid 1100.00 for it, hes asking 200 now,,, it runs fine he says, the only thing wrong is the kick down kinkage,he has it rigged but it works lol. What do ya think? :)

    :haha: .......I've seen a woman riding one and thought it had saddle bags but did a double take and saw it was her a$$!!!

    I bought a Craftsman DYT 4000 (think that's the right model #) for 1229 and it's done super so far. that's all I tell you, I haven't bought one in over 10 yrs, used to pay to have mine cut when my mower was stolen, so I don't know much about what's out there.

    I used to race Lawnmowers.... one of the founder sos LYLRA (Lexington Youth Lawnmower Racing Association) :D (the really funny part is I'm not kidding. Anyways, old 80's craftsman mowers are beasts, All steal, basically built on a mini truck frame, the transaxle in those things will NOT die. several times going full speed in 4th, clutch in, throw it into reverse, clutch out WEEE. haha, but seriously, umm Tecumseh over Briggs and Strat any day
