Any advice on what makes are shite and which ones are worth looking at. I should imagine that something that has good parts availability will be essential.
Now I wonder if I could fit an etec powerhead onto a mower
Now you're in my area.
Honda, John Deere, Husqy and Stiga. The rest are shite.
I have a part-share in a horticultural machinery business.
I have a Husqy LT151 (15hp Kohler) here which has been F-in-Laws since new. You can have that for £600 (£1400 new)
We use diesels, but you need fair acres to justify the additional cost. I have a Kubota TG1860 (24hp Yanmar), F-in-Law runs a JD X495 (27hp Yanmar). The JD is an awesome thing.
