Hi all So the long and the short of it is this, I own a 1995 3-12-8 mower ,blower, tiller.I have a nice hard top soft side? cab on it for the winter months. The issue is I would really like to have a dedicated mower so I do not have to switch between the the cab and blower for the mower every season. I have been switching out the blower since new back in 95 but now with the cab , well each summer I dread it more and more ha ha. I have had the cab on it for about 7 years now and last fall I got to thinking that it would be nice to have one tractor set up for snow and one for mowing. I have been to the classified ads here a few time most recently last evening. I would like another 3-12-8 maybe or a little bigger even. Mine has been very good to me and I will own her forever were in love. I have looked in the local swap magazine and craigslist Maine, but so far nothing to speak of. I don't own a pick up truck so traveling to Mass or Conn to buy one is really out of the question for me. I was reading a "locked thread yesterday" where a guy was asking what his tractor was worth. A lot of replies mentioned that they had bought many their tractors for very little money. I have an old dealer not too far away that I am quite sure I could get maybe a good one from? but I honestly have no idea what would be an acceptably reasonable price. He is a dealer and is quite high on most things so if he has anything I assume it would be no different. I kicked myself last summer for not buying one not too far from me,.. a good looking one about like mine for $600.00 I went home thought about it, then I went back the next day and it was gone. My brother has a larger one maybe 20 hp hydro WH maybe a 95-99? I could get it for free but it came to him from a commercial mower / neighborhood guy who showed her very little mercy I think. It does not run and has electrical issues I guess? I am lost when it comes to electrical so I have stayed away. I kind of want one to mow with not work on right from the get go. But maybe that is the way to go ? Anyway I think I want a mower I would really like it to be another WH but I guess another brand would not be totally out of the question. I have no idea though what that might be? My brother in law has had 3-4 JD's and at any one time 2 are broken down so they would not be high on my list I guess. If anyone has any opinions let me have it I asked for it ! Thanks Jeff
