That is the thing. You know the status of your current mower. You don't know the status of that one. Nor do you know if it would be any faster.

Reviews are pretty good, parts seem readily available, you have mechanical skills...but man that looks like a ton of work!

I looked at one of these before and researched them a bit. First its not that fast, might not be any faster then your rider besides the added benefit of turning.

The older dixon mowers use a cone drive transmission and its a pita to fix. So make sure thats not a problem.

These also have small engines (10-12 hp brigs) with small cuts 36-38".

I never seen any complaints about the cut quality. I read they are pretty reliable.
