I have lusted over the John Deere 220E for quite some time, but had the opportunity to pick one up a few weeks ago. It seems to be in great shape - it was manufactured in September of 2011 and has just over 700 hours on the clock.

This video explains some of its awesome features like the quick adjust cutting height, on-board backlapping and adjustable frequency of clip. It has a Honda GX120 engine, turf conditioner (groomer) and a generous 0.125 - 1.43" HOC range.

Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about it. :thumbup:

I'm copying this over from another thread for posterity:

The 220E front roller has (7) positions that yield overlapping HOC ranges. The HOC is then micro-adjusted by raising/lowering the rear roller. Per the manual, the max HOC is 1.42" with GTC (groomer) or 1.30" without.

The Swardman is very nice, but I'm still a little partial to my Toro GM1600, because wide stripes. :mrgreen:

In all seriousness, they both have their pros and cons.
