    Question L100 Riding mower vs D105

    Hello,

    I have a L100 5 speed mower about 10 yrs old, and have owned a L110 same yr.

    I'm thinking about buying a new D105 and wondering how the transmission is and if its as good as the older model? I mow level ground but am disabled and a large man, my L100 has no problem with me on it but I seen the new auto-trans. and hope its as good as the older model.

    Thanks

    I know nothing about those machines, so cannot help with your question. However, I did want to say...

    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride!

    The hydrostatic drives are easier to drive, but uses the K46 which may not be strong enough for hills, nor for extra weight. But there were thousands of tractors sold with the K46, some are still going strong today. Some have also develop transmission problems. If possible financially if might want to move up the the X320, though then the price will go up considerably. Also there are plenty of used LX2XXs out there which have a better, stronger transmission. Or there are plenty of used GT2X5s out there which have a garden tractor rated transmission in them. Both the LX and the GTs will have commercial grade engines, heavier duty frames, better build quality, stronger transmission, better decks, etc. And there are a few low hour used ones to be had.

    The D105 has an entirely new transmission and does not use the TT K46.
    Since it is new, it does not yet have a track record
