Nothin runs like a Deere Posted by Bill Coats on 06/02/2011

Bought this used when I bought my home. As a large garden tractor/lawn mower it has exceeded my expectations.

50" deck, 42" single stage snow thrower, tire cahins & weights.

We get snow by the foot here, and it always clears the way, mower cuts smooth and even. Always starts. Kawasaki liquid cooled 18 HP v-twin is a great power plant.

I have even used it to skid logs out of the woods at our camp.
