Welcome to GTTalk. I've never owned a GT235 but in general there are a few things to look out for. The steering/axle - is the steering tight? If possible jack up the front end and check the spindles for wear at the wheels and axles. These parts can really add up $$ if they are all worn out. Tie rod ends as well. I'd also verify that the PTO clutch is working.  It's another expensive part to replace. The deck can also be expensive to rebuild. The general condition of the tractor will tell you something about how it was maintained. If there is an hour meter note the reading. 3 to 400 hours would probably be average. You might want to go to JDparts.com and do a model search for GT235. You can access all the diagrams for it and get a good feel for how it goes together.

Welcome to GTtalk!  Glad you found this site!  Bunch of great people here.

They made that tractor from '99 to  '05  so it's not real old, it's got a tuftorq hydro tranny, manual lift. Could have either a Briggs or a Kawasaki motor.   they have an optional sleeve hitch for it and a snow blade for it.  Didn't see any info about a tiller.  You would not want to pick up a tiller with a manual lift anyway.   24x12x12 rear tires, with ags it could do some pulling.  new price was around $5k.  It is worth what ever you want to give for it.  Do like I did and search around on the internet, there are some for sale, some reviews, etc.
