One piece of advice I will give you is to watch the hydraulic line just above the midmount mower (when you get it). If you haven't mowed in awhile, the grass will be long and usually you raise the mower to be able to cut it more easily until it is manageable. When you do this, the mid-PTO shaft rubs on the metal line and wears through it. The John Deere fix is to have the dealer adjust it so you can't raise it very high! You may not notice this if the dealer does adjust it since you don't know how high it should go but the extra inch or so can make it much easier to cut through the tall stuff. It is another example of poor engineering but they are unwilling to reroute the line to give proper clearance. They will replace it though when it wears through. Other than that, I have been pleased.
