After perusing a few forums it seems the overwhelming advice would be to buy a used X300 or higher level JD over a big box store version. Based on that I've been looking at used JD the last week or so and came across the following. Would appreciate any tips or advice on which is the better deal.
X300 - 172 hrs w/ set of new blades and a set of extra blades - $1,695
X300 - 70 hrs w/ Bagger & 10S wagon - Listed @ $2,300, but willing to come down ~$2,100
I don't think I really have any use for the bagger, but would use the wagon. Seller doesn't want to separate out the bagger from the mower. Both have been stored indoors and appear to be in good shape. I plan to go see these in person and test them out prior to making a decision. So based off the difference in hours and the available accessories which would be the better deal? Even tho I don't need the bagger I could turn around and sell and have a mower with lower hours, or just save the hassle and the $400 and take the other?
Of course this could all change based on seeing in person, but just on paper any thoughts are appreciated.
