JD Mulch-On-Demand

Has anyone heard anymore news on the John Deere Mulch-On-Demand mowers? I've been trying to find one without any luck. I hope they'er going to continue production because it sounds exactly like what I'm looking for. I'd like it with a smaller deck but I'd take a 60" if I could find one.

We've actually got one in our dealership. If you're really interested in it let me know as I think I can get you a good deal on it. Since it is last year's model, it does not have the ROPS or the heavy duty air filter.

As far as the mower itself, I have been told it was a prototype released by Deere last year. To me it looks like a good concept. I have heard nothing more about it this year and can find nothing in the sales manual about it.

Matt, I'm definitely interested. I have a couple of questions:
1. Aside from being last years model, is it new, used, demo?
2. Any chance you could send a couple of pics to qlc@cox.net?
3. How much is it?
4. Can you ship to Newport News, VA.
Thanks Matt. I hope to here from you soon.

Sam,

Let me get a camera so I can get some pics from you. This unit is brand new and has never been demo'd. It's got .5 hrs on it. As far as the price, I'll send that to your email as well. We've got a store up in Courtland so I could either have one of the guys up there bring it to you or I could take a road trip and bring it up to you.

Matt

Sam,
Please excuse me for not getting the pics to you. I've been at the doctor 3 times in 3 days. I've got a torn meniscus and have to go back on Monday. I should get to the store around 11am at which time I will get the pics sent to you. Sorry again about the delay.

Matt
