Several years ago I went into the local JD dealer when I was looking for a tractor. They were not very friendly or helpful so I bought as Kubota L3400. This year I decided to upgrade my zero turn and lawn tractor. I went back to the local JD dealer and this time the salesman was very friendly and helpful. I bought a JD Z525E 48" zero turn.Which I love and is a big upgrade over the old Troy Bilt 42". Now its time to upgrade my old Craftsman 42" lawn tractor. I wanted a 54" so I bought a D170 that I also really like. So now I'm a green guy.
