About two weeks ago, somebody here posted a link to a Ford (I think it was an LGT125); at the bottom of the ad the lady said she would also be posting an add for a Jim Dandy that he family has. I looked, and could not find the ad, so I emailed her. She said she had not posted it yet, she also sent me pictures and the asking price. Since they had not even tried to sell it yet, the family did not want to negotiate any, and that was fine with me.
On Friday she emailed me and said that the tractor was still available, and they would come down on the price. Well, they came down quite a bit! I did not even try to negotiate, I do not want to loose the deal over a small amount of money, when I am getting it for a great price anyway.
Like 95% of ads, it "ran when parked" but not anymore. It is a deluxe version, so it has electric start, a body tunnel, and it should have a padded seat, but I can not tell from the pictures. It also has a mower deck, snow blower, discs, and a 10" plow. Since it has a snow blower, I am hoping it has dual transmissions... but I can not tell with the tarp on it. That will be a surprise for when I get there!
I have not went to look at it (it is that good of a deal) so I am not sure of the mechanical condition. The lady selling it states right in the ad that she has no idea about this stuff, so I did not wast time asking her. I don't see why I couldn't save it and use it, so I plan to get it going, put a small refurb on it, and use it to mow!
It is an hour and a half away in NJ, and I am leaving here about 3 o'clock. I will post pictures of it tomorrow night when I get it home!
