Thanks guys. Out of the three I prefer the 445. It's a full hydrualic, so no leaning forward to get a lever, it runs great, it's powerful, it got a big mulching deck and it is super smooth and quiet. We currently only use the 445 for anything as the other two are for sale and we don't want them getting dirty so they sell faster. Having 2 acres to mow and a large garden and many flowerbeds to tend to keeps the 445 running a good bit.
