Loc: It's all about the location.
I'm in the market for a riding mower to cut approx 3/4 acres which is generally flat with several trees(cutting radius?) and some sloping on one side of the property. Not too sure what to look for, what motor to look for(Kohler, Briggs & Stratton...), make ect. Budget is "around" $1500. What say those who have a riding mower?

Thanks, Adrian

I'm a big Kohler fan, awesome durable long lasting engines. I have about 2.5 acres that I mow at my place and have a Gravely Zero turn mower with 23HP Kohler, not one problem after 7 years now.

Thanks, Randy. My father has one of those stand-behind Kohler powered mowers that he loves...think it was around $3500+ though. I'll look for some smaller machines with the Kohler engines. Is your motor a single cylinder or twin?
