    Could someone tell me if a 1999 John Deere Commercial Walk behind 14 hp, 54 inch cut, with 560 hrs, and a pull cord for $1500 is a good deal? I need help...I'm going to check this piece of equipment out tomorrow. I heard that John Deeres hold their value.....is this true? I just want to get my monies worth. :confused:

    Txlawnking could you please explain why this isn't a good deal, I'm new to this and I don't want to get ripped off. Thanks

    You said it yourself.. Ripped off. For a little about 7-8 hundred more, you can buy a brand new WB...with a warranty..and 0 hrs.. If it was $600-900, then that MIGHT be a good deal. Good luck, and God bless you and your biz efforts.
