I found a 1999 John Deere WB 36"(looks to be gear drive). Homeowner got it new, used from 1999-2003. It looks pretty clean. I can get it for around $600. I was looking to buy a new Quick 36 but if this thing would last me about 2 or3 years without much problems I would buy it. It has a Kohler Command 13. Has about 250 hours.
