Bought myself a new toy

Finally bought a new riding lawnmower for the house:

Buying a lawn tractor is not at all straight forward.  To put it in terms more people are familiar with,  imagine trying to buy a car where only the chassis is made by the manufacturer.  The car company does not make the engine or transmission.  There are three manufacturers of engines and they are in all the brands.  There are two main manufacturers of transmissions.  One of the brands sell re-bodied versions of two of the other brands.  One brand sells their marque brand but also makes tractors for other brands.  So for any given tractor,  you can’t just look at the brand,  you have to see who makes the engine, transmission and in some case who is even the manufacturer to begin with.
