Good morning, Merry Christmas.
I am looking to get a lawn/garden tractor and was hoping for some insight from the experts. After doing some research, I want to go with a John Deere. I will most likely be buying a used machine.
I own 2 acres in NH, half of which is wooded. I'd be looking for a machine that can mow and also snowblow. I don't have any immediate need for any other implements currently, but the option would be nice.
Other forums and articles have lead me to stay away from machines made for Home Depot or Lowe's (the LA and LT) series. Do you believe there is truth to the claim that those machines are inferior?
There is a dealer down the road from me that has a 2007 X300 for sale with 550 hours on it. They are asking $3200 for the machine. It has a 44" snowblower, 42" deck, and a bagging system. Does this seem like a decent price?
Is there anything specific I should look at or be concerned with when I go take a look at it?
Thanks for any insight you can offer, and hopefully I'll be on the forums soon as an owner.
