Well - I wasn't going to bother replying  - but I think we do need to 
face reality every so often.  New house 5 years ago - never had need for 
lawn tractor before so didn't know much about them - bought Sears with 
Briggs 15.5hp - worked perfectly ever since - belts stay on - never 
failed to start - doesn't leak oil - and the bit that really amazes me - 
never needs charging even over winter ( I start it about once a month 
for 15 minutes) and still on original battery. Stays in wooden shed all 
summer and storage unit all winter (unheated).

So - er - why should I spend twice as much?
