I loved my MF 1855 with Johnson loader, but any future super will have power steering. Having said that,I like them all and power steering is not that hard to add.

I have a John Deere X585 with 45 loader that we bought new in 2002.
Replaced a JD 420. We added the fel last year and found a lot of uses.
We have no plans to change and it will probalby outlive us. We're 61/62.

All I'll say is that the super garden tractor was first made when the Gravely L came off the line, and it remained the super-est (to coin the phrase) until Gravely did the most stupid move of their career (beyond joining Ariens) of dropping the descendents from active production.

My two Bolens GT2000 DuraTrac's have been very trouble free.

This is a very biases question.

A Bolens collector is going to say HT23 or HT20D

A John Deere guy will say 420 or 318...

A Cub Cadet guru maybe a 982 or similar.

I would love to have a 700 series John Deere. But by the time it had all the options I would want, I think one of the 1023 or 1026 sub compacts would cost less? My brother runs a 420 and loves it, he works the heck out of it,

I thought this topic looked somewhat familiar.  If you want a listing of super garden tractors, have a look at the thread above.

 

It is possible that the Allis 720 is the king of garden tractors.  I don't think anything that was billed as a garden tractor was any larger than it was.
