I have a cub cadet and am very happy with it, but am not talking from much experience. I must agree with the hydrostatic transmission as a must though. Can't imagine what a pain it must be to mow without it.
Good luck!

One more bit of advice from me. If you are intereseted in buying a used mower, check with your real estate agent. They usually know about people interested in selling their mowers for cheap.

what i've seen on the cheaper craftsmans is that they don't have a drain plug on the rear axle,that's what seems to be the weak link on them,i like to change all the fluids.just like your boat.

I didn't really look at the auto as that much of a difference, I don't mind changing gears....but from what you guys are saying I'll try to get one that is auto. My main thing is a good engine/deck.......now if I can fit some other extra's in there I'll gladly do it, but from what I've seen you give or take a few options on different models. I appreciate all the help guys!!
