I've posted several of threads on john deere tractors, but now I've found I really want. It's a john deere 318, and it's in great shape. I'm pretty small, I only mow about 35 yards, so I really don't have the money to invest in a 6000$ zero turn. The thing that worries me about the tractor is that it's got 1200 hours, which is a lot. I've experienced, and heard that these engines crap out around 1500 to 1700 hours. Here is what the ad says All original John Deere 318 with 1200 hrs. Cheaper John Deeres can be had but I won't take less for this one. Thank You for looking. If you are from out of the area I'll be happy to send more pictures and or video upon request. Here's some pics of it. http://s1007.photobucket.com/albums/af197/hikingboot/John Deere 318/ Really what i'm wondering is if this thing could take several more years of semi commercial use? If i'm going to spend 2500$ I need it to last. There is also a snow blower that's for sale that would be nice to get. Would it be a good investment to get this thing? Tell me what you guys think.
