I have a stx 38,yellow deck, it was my father's tractor in Florida. I have it up here since he passed. I had some issues with it. I went to my JD dealers green tag event. North Country Tractor. Dover,N.H. I didn't by a new one[ wanted too, but my property tax bill slowed me down] They got me some parts for my carb. to try,it works great,I went back today and ordered some parts and bought a tuneup kit. They treated me well and I own a different make of compact tractor. I noticed their prices are comparable to the big box stores for lawn tractors. When I decide to buy,it will be at the dealer. Thank You again North Country. plowking
