Question Single or twin?

Hi all,
I am buying a new John Deere Lawn tractor. I'm having trouble deciding between the model 115 (single cylinder B&S, 19HP) and the model 125 (V-twin B&S, 20HP). Both seem like good machines.
Any opinions, engine wise?
Thanks very much

The 19 got the AVS system? Mine is quite smooth...., I just feel the bumps from the yard. As for the twin, usually twins are smooth to begin with.

Yup, it has the AVS system. Is that some sort of counter-rotating weight to balance things out?

Alot smoother then the old synchro balanced engines, when running this thing feels like it isn't.

Thanks for all your excellent opinions on these two models. Yesterday I decided, and bought the John Deere 125 with the 20hp V-twin engine.
I think either model would have been a winner.
Thanks again
