Need a new Rider
Need to replace my old Murray 14.5 LT, bought it 4 years ago for $250 and it has finally died. I am only mowing 10,000 sq ft and have a limited budget. I was looking at the Snapper LT 130AWS, 23hp B&S ELS, 46" deck which was about $2400, then I saw an Allis Chalmers AC130 AWS, which had an identical parts write up for $1600. Am I crazy or are these the same machines with different color and badges? I was looking at the Snapper because I've owned a Snapper snow blower for 15 years and it always started on the first pull (even when I forgot the fuel stabilizer the previous year). I have looked at the Cubs and Deeres, but other than purchasing them at one of the "Boxes", seem to be priced way too high. Does anyone have the AC or Snapper for comment or review?
