I have a L130 with approx. 550 hours. The first year all of the blade spindles went out. They were replaced under warranty with spindles that have grease zerts. The K46, Am131580, Tuff Torg transaxle went out.
I had a Sears cheap-o lawn tractor for 20 years that I never had any troubles with and was expecting the same out of a JD product. I took the tranny out, drained the oil, replaced it and still it would not work. Do I replace it for $700 plus from JD or look for a different tractor? I have grass catcher new in box. I have the snow blade that I have used quite a bit and not sure what if any other model they would work with.
