Default Input on buying a new riding lawnmower.

Being as it's way to early to mow any grass, I thought I'd shop for a new riding lawn mower now, and try to save some on one. I've hear a lot of good things about John Deere mowers, so decided I'd get one of those. I've been looking on-line, and there's not as much choice as you would think, but finally got it down to three. So, looking for input on which would be best to buy.

I have a John Deer riding mower, but don't recognize the models that you are showing. Mine is of the 100 series, model 125 with a 42" cut, a 19 HP engfine and it is an excellent mower. All I can say to you is that I don't see how you can go wrong with a John Deere machine.

I would go with the first one, especially if you have a smaller yard. It looks to be the most maneuverable

Hah! I will have you know I still have my original hair, still growing on my head not kept in a box, and it still has color.

Dunno, not getting the help here I thought I would. So, having found out today which of my two sons has my welder, may have to go with something along these lines.

This is not a John Deere, but if worse comes to worse, I could struggle along with something like it.
