    Congratulations. Buying from dealer is a wise choice, in my opinion. It's the same price as you would find at Lowes or HD, and that dealer will service it anyway wherever you bought it, so why not establish a relationship with them at purchase.

    I've seen Donald's on Machinefinder - they seem to have a lot of used lawn and garden tractors.

    Again, congratulations on your decision and purchase. Can't wait for the pictures.

    See, you're already getting the John Deere customer treatment from your dealer. You wouldn't get that from the home center!

    Congrats on the new purchase!

    Did you try choking it? These newer small engines run very lean. You might have to choke it when on an older model it wouldn't be necessary.

    I have to ask, just because I have done it myself. Do you have any gas in the gas tank?

    Depending on how the safety switches operate, check to see if your pto switch is off, brake is on and you're on the seat. Check the gas level and be sure you choke it to start it.

    Yes to all,,tank is still full,have sat on the seat brake engaged throttle all the way up,engine just turns.
    Called the dealer last night,said they would call me this morning.
    Glad i have a 30 day return no questions asked.
    Hate to return it but cant have this happening again and have to push 500 lbs back to the shed.
