Nothing wrong with a 499. I still drag one over a couple hundred acres a year of alfalfa grass mix. Keep the cutterbar tuned and she'll do a wonderful job. If this one exploded tomorrow I'd be finding another that evening. Heck, for ten grand you could buy two of them and still have money left over for earmuffs so you don't have to listen to people chastising you for running a sickle machine.
