Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen,
My name is Jason Gadsby, I am a retired Soldier/Disabled Veteran living in Texas. I am not an owner as of yet, but am hoping to be one soon after hearing the thoughts from all you experts out there. My Father in Law is selling his 97ish GT235 ride on. He is selling it fairly cheap because it needs some work. It does run, albeit a little rough as he has left it out doors for quite some time. The plastics will all need replacing, as well as the seat. There isnt really any rust to be spoken of, but I would be painting it again just to have a fresh tractor. I am experienced mechanically, having been a mechanic in the Army for 13 years. I can also paint, weld, etc etc. So my question to you all is, is it worth saving? The cost is around $250, and then the parts needed to fix her up like new. I am on a small lot now, but my wife and I are about to buy a 2 acre lot near Lake Whitney and will need a tractor. I am glad to be here, and even assuming you all tell me I am dumb and just buy a new one, it will still be green and yellow Thank you all and please dont pull any punches!
