Well, I was planning on buying a used x720 using machinefinder and uship but my faithful old red snapper tractor died in the middle of mowing Friday night. I went to the JD dealer locally Saturday morning with not much hope of buying a new tractor but to show my wife the tractor that I hoped to get (she does alot of the mowing). The dealer didn't have one and in fact told us that they only sold three of them this year but had one at another location that he could get in a few days. I had him make me a formal proposal and I must admit I was very impressed. Turns out he doesn't have a 54 inch deck so he would have to order the entire unit from the factory taking about 10 days to arrive. I get a new tractor with 4 years of warrenty and no time on the clock for what I figure $1,300 more then a year old with low hours. Plus I get to use the low interest finances offered by JD. I am going in tomorrow and order it. Hope my lawn can wait 10 days because mowing it with a push mower isn't fun. Hopefully I also will have a good dealership in case I have any problems in the future.
