Another one to consider is the BCS. Rear tine, 3 speed transmission, separate control for tines. You can also get other attachments (bush hog type mower, sickle mower, etc.) Works much better than the Horse Troy bilt, IMHO (I had a Troy for many years before). It is heavy, and kind of a chore at the end of the row. Just don't get an early one with the Acme engine- mine has Briggs, and it works fine.

I priced a BCS. Scared the heck out of me. Seems like the basic power unit was somewhere around $2,500? The tiller unit is seperate and was another $500? It was going to cost me right at $3,000. Just to do what my $800 Craftsman will do.

Not even remotely the same type of tractor. The BCS is the modern equivalent of a Gravely, which was a real 2 wheeled tractor. The Crapsman is just a tiller, that's it. $800.00 and it will do one job, probably not for too many years at that, and that's if you are lucky. The BCS/Gravely you have a real tractor with a variety of attachments that's good for more than one job. Yeah, it costs 4 times as much, but you get 10x the tractor.
It's all in what you expect out of things. Personally, after spending over $2K on a Crapsman lawn tractor and the nightmare that's been...I'd never buy another new piece of Crapsman power equipment.
