    It's pretty level here, and I don't envision any real need for shifting on the fly (I can't do that now when I brush hog with my 8N), so I don't think it'll be an issue. If I need to do anything along those lines, I can always use the LS in a pinch, but I don't foresee it happening.

    Those are some tough little tractors, you shouldn't have any problems out of it. I'd try to get them down on the price some, or ateast a complete fluid change and service.

They have a pretty solid reputation for longevity.

    I didn't ask if they have any wiggle room on the price....I'd rather do that in person, likely with cash in hand.
    Everything sounds good to me. My nearest dealer is around 50 miles one way.

    Decent deal on a nice basic rig. They always have some wiggle room. Go for it!

    Looks like a decent deal.


    I'm in the same boat and starting to shop. 2wd and simple gear drive is ok for a mowing tractor.
