Here is my predicament. I bought a used JD 737 in the fall of 08 with 200hrs on it. It was in great shape and looked new, it's an 05 model. Each year since then, I had some sort of oil leak. 1st year the fix was a seal around the shaft and cost $110, not a big deal. Last year it was a bad head, which cost $600+. Now it has a bad seal around the oil pan, and a bad wheel motor. The JD dealer says to fix will cost $2300! I paid about 5k for it. I dont wanna sink the cash into it. It currently has 332 hours on it. I use it for my 3+ acres and sometimes mow for a neighbor or some property for a family member, but very limited. So, I need.....a new mower and a way to get rid of my 737. What have you guys done in these situations? I asked the JD service guy and he said fix it since I keep it in such good shape and the hours are low. But I dont want to take the chance. I would like to spend around 7k or maybe even 8k. I would love to trade the 737 in and get SOMETHING for it. So far, a Scag/JD dealer offered me 250 on the phone. Is it worth more than that? I like the Tiger cat, couple of the Exmarks.......price quoted on a e-series lazer z was 8100. Place was not wanting to do a trade. I also have a Cub Cadet 1527 lawn tractor, in great shape, with just over 100 hours. I'm up for any and all suggestions. Thanks.
