Went to JD dealer, need ztr. Best mower I've got is a '01 LX 277 AWS 48" deck, and hate it! Will sell a new '01 M653 Z-Trak, 23hp Kohler, 54" deck, w/full warrenty etc. $4500.00 w/trade in. JD is the only dealer in my area, support and service has been very good! All other dealers 35/40 miles away for me or would and may still consider another option. I know the JD community here (Lawnsite) is rather small but any and all input will be greatly appreciated.
