/ MT125 vs RK24H #1
I recently returned to owning an acreage (about 3). I considered purchasing a subcompact when I moved here, but decided instead to pay a yard guy and buy a UTV. The UTV gets used every day, but is not a good fit for some dirt work and other tasks I want to do, so I am again looking at a tractor. I was leaning towards RK and specifically the RK24H, but started reading here about LS, which I was not familiar with. I am in SW FL and the nearest RK Tractors is over 2 hours away (Lake Wales). Not a huge deal, but not exactly convenient. The LS dealer is about an hour away (Fort Denaud). Looking at their inventory, they have two 2019 MT125 for $14,730. That is about $1K more than a new RK24H and that is before the employee discount that I believe I can get via my great-nephew. I plan to buy a loader and box blade with the tractor and maybe a mower. I am leaning towards a pull-behind mower so it is not in the way while doing dirt work. Did anyone here consider/compare the MT125 to the RK24H or LS to RK before they made their purchase? I have searched the Internet and not found anything. Thanks.
