I picked up a JX 75 at a Estate sale for $150 yesterday. It had less than one season of home owner use. Talk about a survivor. This mower is probably more than 10 years old but almost zero time on it. It works wonderfully. Another LCO that is a friend of mine runs nothing but these and he offered me $400 for it, but after using it on a few yards I'm going to keep it. John Deere built one good mower back in the 90's and now builds nothing but junk. What were they thinking?
