To all,
Unfortunately my lawn tractor died recently. My grass is getting tall I am getting nervous and I am shopping for another tractor. Here are my current choices:
1.) Used:John Deer LT180, 48" deck, 261 hour (about 5 years), 17HP Kawasaki engine, Price $999, free delivery.

2.) Used: John Deer L130, 48" deck, 360 hours (6 years), 23 HP 2 cycle kohler engine,$1250. Comes with grass catcher, delivery $45

3.) New LA115, 19.5 briggs and Stratton, 42 inch deck $1600, $60 delivery.

4.) New Craftsman YT3000 (28922) $1400.00

I am leaning toward the LT180 , any advice?

RE: lawn tractors

ignore the spambot above. the LT180 is a different class of machine than any others you listed and would be MY first choice. the only advantage the Craftsman or LA machiens have are warranty. the L130 is probably due for some major maintenance before long, such as tranny oil change and likely a new front axle(mine has broken 2x at roughly 250 hours each time).

RE: lawn tractors

If ya don't know how to fix 'em---buy a new one that you can afford! Do not buy a used one, if you aren't mechanically educated, or inclined! And, buy the Warranty, too. Will save time, trouble, and money in the future. A good service plan is worth it, too!
