While being frustrated with my 20-some year old Craftsman rider bought on CL for $350 I tried to figure out how I could get another rider, that'll last a while, for cheap. Happened across a 1984 John Deere 316 on CL and did my due diligence (being a millennial and all) to figure out what they were all about. I specifically was swayed by Hammerdown's thread regarding restoration of the 316 and 318 lines and was sold.
I've got some issues I'm going to address in another thread, but for now I'm joining the green team and hopefully will be both an active contributor and avid learner! Don't tell my wife though, she's pretty unhappy I have two riders in the garage now...
