    Im reading the JD site, I see the green-fleet program, but what do the points mean and what do they do???

    Sorry for the dumb question, but I dont see the explination (spelling?) of points on the JD site.

    Thanks!!!

    each mower is worth 6 points, and each piece of hand held (backpack blower is considered handheld) is 1 point. the green fleet and points give you like 10% of each piece the more you buy the better % off you get. my total came to $13,800... on top of all the equipment i had to buy another truck to pull it so i picked up a used very clean 85 F250 (80k miles) for $2k

    Congratulations on the new equipment. I'm sure you will be very happy with it. We are thinking of getting a new 777 60" in March.

    14k seems pretty damn cheap for all you got. Hell of a deal man!

    A little off topic... Does anyone know how much the JD quick tracks are? Im looking at either a stander or quick track, or anything else that is simular.

    Anyway, awsome rig, I cant wait to see pic's!
