I've been looking for a good used garden tractor for years and I'm having no luck at all.  My goal is to find a good used 400 series garden tractor with 3 point hitch and mower deck.  It seems the only thing available from John Deere dealers is either new tractors or completely worn out old tractors (with very few of those even available). 


Here's what I've done so far:


1)  searched craigslist nationwide--all I find are garden tractors 500+ miles to the north;

2)  searched eBay--same result;

3)  searched tractorhouse.com--same result;

4)  general google search--same result.


What else can I do to find a good used garden tractor down south?


Is there some sort of auction circuit that I could attend?


Is there some other website that lists good used garden tractors?


Thanks for your help.

If you are interested, Drew Gardner has a 455 that he is trying to sell.  If I am not mistaken, he is asking 3800 for it.  Email him at DrewGardener@Rocketmail or send him a message this board.   It is about 350 miles from you but we both know people that could get it moved for you.

You mean one like this, which is about 1 1/2 hours or so from you?
