Greetings all,
I recently purchased a completely refurbished (inside & out) JD 655 with 1800 hours for $3,200 which seems like a reasonable price. I have always owned/still have a craftsman GT6000 with a sleeve hitch to tackle my jobs. However, it is too small and not powerful enough for what I am doing- time for upgrade. I am a retired Army First Sergeant (1SG) living on 1 acrea, on a hill, outside of Nashville, TN. Upgrading to a SCUT from a HD garden tractor is a notable difference. I can see already I need to have an aggressive maintenace plan. I was hesitant to go “green” as I really had my eyes on Kubota/Kioti. However, opportunity (price/location) and a JD service dealership down the road, is what made me pull the trigger on this deal. Look forward to reading all the awesome knowledge on this forum.

Thanks
Pete. :greentractorride:

Congratulations on going green and for all the right reasons. That is one sweet tractor you got there and I'm sure with a little TLC it will reward you with many years of service.
