OK knowledgeable members of The SD I would greatly appreciate any advice on selecting a new ride on mower/garden tractor. Need to cut about 2 acres of rough garden/orchard so it doesn't need to end up like a bowling green but want something sturdy and reliable which mulches the grass. Have been put off anything with a Kohler or Briggs and Stratton engine (I know the old ones were good but modern versions reportedly unreliable) so looking at a Husqvana with a kawasaki 18.5 hp engine. Have a budget of £2-3k.
Any advice or recommendations from anyone who has recently purchased/used one of these much appreciated as I don't know much about them. Oh and it is shooting related because I bag lots of bunnies on this bit of land!!
