I bought a Cub Cadet LTX 1040 a couple of years ago and have been very happy with it so far.
I would also recommend buying it from a dealer. I got mine from Watson Lawnmower and they lubed/greased the fittings, checked the oil, straightened the alignment, checked air pressure, etc. when I bought. You're not gonna get that from a box store. They're just gonna roll it off the pallet onto your trailer.
