I walked into the JD dealer last week and they had 20 bushel crate of free taters. Honestly I thought about buying a $40 hoodie then taking the crate.

I usually avoid the Deere dealerships since no good becomes of it...

I do have to say Deere has the best calenders and will likely slink in and grab a couple...

That tilt trailer looks sweet in the background.

That 605 hidin behind the 632 has less than 200 hours, and has been setting there awhile. If they would just throw in a MP bucket and a discount i'd be broke.

If you're going to "test out" or buy a LA100 series JD, you may as well "test out" or buy any of the other color MTDs with the cheaper color paint.

The only JD lawn tractors that cost as much on sale as to what to repair an old one, are the crappy box store LA100 series units and are not worth getting for serious use.

This is the main yard for Erb equipment, the deere construction and lawn mower dealer in the St. Louis area. Nothing quite like having a hoe broke down and waiting for some jack leg at the parts counter trying to get a belt for his lawn mower! Anyone know what happened to the sales man from this location that posted on here all the time about a year ago?
