Yeah, I think he's fibbing! :laugh: I bought my house in May of 2012. The 1st time I mowed I used the 20" push mower I owned from my previous postage stamp sized yard. The following week I went out and bought the D160. The D1XX machines were all that Lowe's, HD and the dealers had for Deere riding mowers at that point in time. The LA1XX machines were long gone from stores.Thanks for your input Jim. As far as the year , I’m going by what the owner said. He said he bought 4 years ago new from he think Home Depot
It should seem like a lot to you! Your spidey senses are working well! :laugh:And has about 1/3 of acre. Overall if used 4 months a year it’s about 23 to 24 hours a month. Seems like a lot to me but not sure. Nothing was changed on it besides battery
You were told wrong. The JDs at HD and Lowes are identical to the ones at the JD dealers.100% agree with you. When I looked the model up , I couldn’t find anything with it even being sold even 5 years ago. I was told to not go the Lowe’s / Home depot route because it’s lower end & some parts plastic vs metal from actual dealers. Maybe if he drops it 500$ we can do business for time being. ?. Thanks again for the input. Greatly appreciated !
That's a fairly good estimate. I have about 1/2 acre and also use my tractor a bit for pulling a lawn cart around performing chores. I put approximately 50 hrs. per year on it.It should seem like a lot to you! Your spidey senses are working well! :laugh:
The hours would be almost impossible. It takes me about an hour/week to mow. A 1/3rd of an acre shouldn't take more than 20 minutes. So that'd be ~1.5 hours/month. I mow from April through October. At 1 hour/mow for 25-26 weeks out of the year plus some minor piddling around that gets me to ~30 hours/year. I don't see how someone could possibly put 23-24 hours/month on a mower with only 1/3rd of an acre. He would have had to mow the lawn daily.
But if you take that 370 hours and divide it by 9 years you get to 40 hours/year which seems much more realistic if it was used to collect leaves, haul gardening supplies, etc...
