been looking for a ztr for about a month. I have looking at green and orange. I have looked at everything with in 150 miles. After seeing price of 997R I even looked at a 3046, two 3320, one with 145 hours out of local Deere plant. I looked at the new 2038 and even a 3025E Last night I get in bed fire up my iPad and the local dealer has 7- Z970R used on tractor house. 2105's with 210 hours to 600 hours. this morning I am there. Asking about why 6 2yr old machines. I am told the city of Moline forced Deere to take them back. It seems they had 950 before and ran them on propane. They traded them fo 970 because Deere said the propane kits would just transfer over. When they had nothing but trouble with tHem Deere agreed to take them back in trade for new 950. The one I bought has 214 hours with deluxe seat. One word of advice the price. On tractor house is a starting point. They want to move them.
My main concern is they tried to convert to propane and it did not work. Could there be something inside the engine possibly damaged by propane?? It starts right up and purrs like a cat?? Thanks for any put.
