I went to the local Sears scratch and dent and saw a GT6000 there for sale. I decided to get it and walked out the door for under $2500...which I thought wasn't bad...considering it retails for $3599. I don't have a good picture of it yet, but this is the model pictured below. Interesting thing about it? It has a reserve fuel valve like a motorcycle...

Almost identical to the one my parents got last year. I like it for them because there's no "hump" in between your feet, easier to get on & off of for them. The seat ain't bad either :D

Good buy!

I thought I'd dislike the armrests but they are growing on me...

It is nice to slouch sometimes while mowing, only thing I worry about with the armrests is it may slow your exit from the tractor if she rolls. Sometimes milliseconds count. Thankfully, this thing has a pretty low center of gravity, or feels that way at least.

Congratulations! That's how I acquired my 2009 PGT9000. I've been very happy with it.

Although the hydro IS serviceable, have they finally changed the Owner's Manual to give some information on that?

Nope. I found the service manual and it outlines the procedure in it. Sears manual sez is sealed and not serviceable.

Thanks for adding the Hydro-Gear G730 Service Manual to the Manuals section. I really appreciate it!

My PGT9000 has the same drive unit as yours. And my manual also says it is sealed.
