Would anyone know what the retail price would have been for the DGT1700 diesel when it first came out? Just the bare tractor. I have a JD 332 and it has a Yanmar diesel it which has a lot of features that are similar to the DGT Bolens.

Well a 1256 in 1970 was $1444.00 just to give you an idea. I bet anything with a Mitsubishi 17HP diesel went for $4k +  between 1988 and 1991. I could not find any specific pricing on the DGT1700 it would be interesting to know.

I think retail on a 332 with the 50 deck was $8,500 in 1989, for comparison.

I would be inclined to think then that a DGT1700 diesel with a 48 inch mower deck would have retailed for close to $7,000.00 if not a little more.

My GT2000 MSRP was $6200 with 60" deck when I purchased it new in 1992.
