I purchased this tractor in 2012. It had been refurbished by the previous owner. It runs excellent and looks nice. It currently shows 925 hours on the meter, but will increase because I'm still using it. I can not speak for the previous owner, but the meter has always worked since I've owned it. It needs nothing! Everything works as it should. I have used it primarily for mowing, maintaining a gravel driveway and occasionally moving trailers around. I added a very strong, fabricated 3 point hitch (instructions from this website) and is identical dimension wise to a factory 3 point. It has a 50" mower that I replaced all the bearings and belt on last season. I am including a 4' box blade (needs painting but works fine). I will also include a set of John Deere vinyl coated rear wheel weights. The receiver hitch in the photos is NOT INCLUDED. I still need it for my other tractor to move my trailer around. Feel free to PM me for contact information. Located in Louisville KY.
