Ive been looking for a lawn vac. This came from an estate. The wife was tired of looking at it and the SIL was selling it. He had no offers. I ended up getting it for 200$. The PO must have passed away in the winter months. They said it hadnt been started in a few years but had been garage kept for the last 15 years. The oil was new and the tank/carb had been run dry. I checked the oil added gas and it started 3rd pull. The chute wasnt there so I ask the guy selling it. He said it was in the garage most likely and wanted me to see if i could find it. Up goes the door and I see 2 let me say 2 420 John Deeres. Both with less than 1600 hours. Both had decks. Best looking set of twins ive seen in a long time. Also I noticed this has electric start. I need to find the manual on it. I happy with it and used it all day.

Wow, That is a very nice find. I would stay in touch with them, you might end up with a nice pair of 420's too.

That is a great looking unit for a great price. Any chance on the 420's for you?

Very nice indeed. It looks like the fellow who owned that looked after it very well. The tractors likely received the same good treatment.

I told them to contact me if they decided to sell them since i deal with GTs. They dont have a clue about how to advertise or where to post them. No JDs for me. Its all I could do to come up with the cash to buy this.

Great score! No sharp turns with that trailer though. What's the electric plug for?

OK someone call the cops, that sounds like a steal not a purchase. Nice find!! What a deal at that price, very handy attachment to have, you will love it.
