I think theres GT's guys all over ontario,

I had the site up on my lunch at work, the Bell buy came in todo some repairs. "Whats that?"

Turns out he's got several GT's in the shed. My nieghbour has got a JD212 and a JD GT225.

I dounno, I find the GT's just seem to give tonnes of service and help for very little work that I put into them.

Mine have cut the grass for years, yard clean ups, I blow my snow plus 2 other houses for 2 older ladys on my street.

I keep mentioning the site,

This just keeps going on ,

Guy down the hall from my office sold his 4x4 quad with a blade. Didn't use it enough, need a new lawn mower anyway,

BUT after some conversation with me about my GT's.

He went out and bought a JD GT235, complete with blower, deck, tiller, dump wagon, power flowbagger.

He's got a large property in town, and a rental, needed up with yard work snow removal. Quad wasn't cutting it. Its not a classic, but its definitially a very good GT.

Good work Jehtro! For every guy converted, that's at the very least one GT that is saved!

And on average probably a lot more than just one:smilewink:

Good job on the conversion! If he's a painter, maybe you could swap services and have yours looking great too LOL!


Good job, Jethro. I agree with Daniel. Offering yours for practice, plus helping take his apart for the paint job.


:ditto:
Thats along the lines of what I was thinking, sounds like a good guy to get some swapping done with.
