Get what suits you. Lots of good garden tractors out there, just make sure that they meet your requirements. I am somewhat biased but would never recommend one model over another. Happy hunting!

...until the PTO clutch wears out and you cant take it off because the set screws are rusted in. then the socket strips out and you have to take half of the tractor apart to drill them out.  :wallbanging:

that wasn't an issue on quietline or newer (started with that series in 1975)  electric PTO clutch like every other "big" mower brand from then on.

Did you read this thread thoroughly? This was already discussed.

I hadn't done so at the point that I posted what I'd said that this comment was about, but have since.

Find Cub Cadet, buy Cub Cadet, live happily ever after.

What would you think of a 122 Cub in reasonable shape, still working? Looks like a tough critter. Can't say I like the Seat much, probably better choices for your back.

The clutch on those is pretty stiff and hard for shortlegged grandkids to work. Put a good front bumper on it

The 122 is a great tractor however you mentioned letting kids ride it and they might not be able to work the clutch very well.

Maybe some ballast on the nose, to keep it down... especially with the stiff clutch you mention
