I love the Sears stuff, think they are very capable machines. I will say this, however, if you don't want to take the deck off to do a little leveling with a back blade, you're going to have to buy a different Sleeve Hitch. That one goes up and down with the Same lever as the deck... Sounds good in theory, and is OK, but in the real world where you mowed earlier and now want to smooth out a little gravel or what not, you have to remove the mower to do it. I actually had this problem with my GT5000. The front blade goes up and down with the lift lever, but if I bought that style sleeve, so would my back blade. I have found it useful to have the box blade on behind while using the push blade. Best of both worlds.

The SS you have in that list looks nice, but no mower or 3 point...

The Ford looked nice, heck they all do... I agree with Dale... Buy 'em all and add on LOL.

Well I think you know which one I will vote for

But you need to set down and figure what options you want tiller,blade,loader,deck,turn plow ect
Some are high dollar options or hard to find for different models or both

that blade on the SEARS looked too big....like it was off something else.....and with no rear weights might get goofy?

Man! You DO have it bad!! LOL I can't speak for parts availability for all of the brands listed above, but the Sears stuff...as long as it isn't too old, and the JD stuff have readily available parts outlets. I'm sure that there are some folks on here who can advise you on the rest!

You can still get some of the Ford/Jacobsen parts through New Holland.
