A Good Purchase Posted by ABedford on 04/22/2013

I bought my John Deere 970 diesel 4WD when it was about 10 years old, with fewer than 1000 hours on it. It had been used in a golf course community in the common areas and was in pretty good shape at that time.

For the most part, it's been pretty reliable. The radiator developed a leak and had to be replaced, and I also had to replace the fuel tank (which had accumulated excessive sediment).
