my name is kevin , im from the island of Kauai , Hi. and i just bought a used John Deere Hydro 185. this is my first riding lawnmower and not sure what i really got myself into. It looks really cool and im super stoked that i really have one. when i purchased this lawnmower it was sitting one the side of the road with a for sale sign on it , it has been repainted and gots some rust ,but not sure what year and dont know what the serial number is because the serial number plate has been removed. The original owner said everything worked fine , and it testdrove fine too. but when i brought it home to do my lawn lololol the darn belt (the one on the mower deck) busted on me, within the first five minutes. So now im online trying to buy parts for this this thing and i dont know the year , serial number or deck size of my mower.
could anyone here help me out?
