    Pros: 15" turning radius, safety features
    Cons: price

    Summary: The LT series is a fine machine. I also happen to own one. And with proper care will last a long time. Bellalunak should have been explained by salesperson that the LT series is built to handle 1 acre, not 2.5 acres. In this case the LT155 is working ... read more
