This morning I got a call from my best friend asking me if I wanted his son's JD 110. I went over this afternoon with my son and picked it up. It has an electrical gremlin I'll have to run down and could use some tires and they think the bearings in the spindles are shot. But for free I'm not complaining.

This is the first tractor I worked on when I first started my small engine repair. My friends son said he was tried of dealing with it and went and go a walk behind like the land scapers use.

What do you all think would be a good price for it when I have everything fixed?

Well, I think it's a great deal, even if it is "One of That" kind of JD. I see them around here in the paper and CL for $500 and down to $150 with various maladies. The spindle is a common issue, from what I understand.

Is that one of the ones with the TuffTorque K46 transaxles in it? I have an L130 that my Dad gave me because the tranny was messing up when it got warm. It looks to be in great condition cosmetically, as long as the hydro is working properly, it mows well, and it runs well, I should think that $500 is a fair price, maybe even a little more. It seems that green paint makes it worth more LOL.

That looks like a nice little mower Bill. That's a good friend who think of you when a tractor is in need of a home!

Cleaned up, fix the electrical, change the trans over to full synthetic 5w50, should be worth 600-800 bucks all day long depending on location.

Below is a link to a download from "TuffTorq" on how to service the trans.

Thanks John, that will come in handy. I hope to start working on it in a week or so.

Yes Danny is a very good friend, plus I got a spare tire (& wheel) for the trailer and his son sent a Concrete saw for me to look at and see if I can fix. Today turned out to be a good day plus I got some bonding time with my son. :)

My SIL's L110 also had an electrical issue and kept blowing the fuse. I put in a slow-blow 15 amp circuit breaker and it worked fine for the last year he owned it before selling it this spring for $500.

Free is worth saving up for ! I've also heard that the deck spindles are less than up to the task, however, a little shopping on Flea-Bay will find you a good deal on them. As mentioned, the trans is a little light but again... if you service it out and all "seems" well, here anyway, they are going for the above mentioned $500.00

Congrats on the little Deere...

Nice mower for free. Yea, $500 seems to be the going rate for them around here in good condition.
