    Deere may have one of their own, but I can't say for sure about that. I know other companies makes them for the 7 Iron deck though.

    The MOD is nice for being able to go back and forth around beds, drives etc for sure, but like I said, unless the lawn is thick and/or lush, it doesn't perform as well as the std deck which cuts as good as it gets. I almost went with the std deck and OCDC, and now I wish I had.

    Ok gentleman my dealer offered me 7,000 trade in on my 460 with 240 hours on it. Does that seem low or about right?

    I can't speak for your area, but here, I'd call that a pretty fair deal coming from a dealer.

    I have honestly never traded a mower in before so I wasn't sure. Normally we run them into the ground and then sell them off.


    Here is how the deal would work out.

    He is calling his rep to see if they have a efi kohler with the new deck in stock so he can order it in. I did get him up another $300 on the trade as you can see it written on the work sheet he made up.

    What are all the hand written numbers at the bottom?

    If you are fine with the hit in difference from what you paid to what you'll get in order to have the machine you want, go for it. It's much more enjoyable to be on something that makes you happy IMO, and worth what it takes sometimes in order to get there.

    Just as a referrence, my local dealer will give you exactly half of what he thinks he can get for your machine from a resale when you trade in. He's a very large dealer, one of the biggest in this state and he doesn't deviate from his practice of doing that.:hammerhead:

    That's why I never trade anything in....it costs way too much for me to be happy with. You basically give your trade in away. But, having said that, I also realize that there are situations and/or circumstances where you really don't have a choice.

    I think the sales tax is too high. Around here the sales tax is based on the amount owed {$2303}. It looks like sales tax is being figured off the $9303.

    The sales tax is correct. As far as i am aware 99% of states the sales tax is based off the actual price being paid for the item.

    In this case my monthly payment will be like $3 more a month. I have paid a little less than a year on the mower on a 48 month 0% loan with no money down. So all said and done I will be getting a new mower with exactly the options I want for the same monthly payment I already pay and 1 extra year of payments (instead of 3 years left I will be starting over at 4 years).

    Getting exactly what you want is definitely worth a lot. After all, in the end, you're the only one that has to be pleased. :drinkup: :)
