Older Tractors are Worth It Posted by MrDave on 11/03/2011

Just bought this JD 140 from a dealer in Indiana that refurbishes them and other JD machines. As an older tractor it was built well and is not falling apart. In my opinion it still operates as new.

However compared to a new tractor there are differences in it's ability to navigate a lawn as compared to a modern lawn tractor or mower. But with it's Hydro and ability to add "Real Tractor" implements it is great.

Forward and reverse are controlled with a lever instead of your foot and the Hydro is better than shifting gears. As I use it more I will get used to it.
