 john deereL130 verses sear's GT 5000

From what I can see, the two tractors are in different classes. The Sears you mention looks like they classify it as a Garden tractor capable of using a tiller,, while the Deere L130 is a lawn tractor. While both use a 48" deck, the Sears GT has larger tires, and both use the Kohler engines. At this point, HP isn't an issue, all of these box type tractors are highly overpowered. I would take a look at things like the hood construction, metal vs. poly. (dents and rust down the road with the sears) Look at the frames, Deere uses fully welded frame, not bolted together. Make sure you get on both machines and feel them out, quality of components, comfort of seat, (black "hot" seat on sears), mower deck height adjustment, hydro operation etc. The turning radius looks larger, according to the Sears website, at 30", seems big for a lawn mower. Also, consider the 2 sources for future parts and service. (I'm assuming you would buy the L130 from a Deere dealer, since pricing is the same as H Depot)
Good luck,
Dutch
