    Good day folks.

    I have an oppourtunity to trade (+ $1,000) my older Ransomes walk behind for a nicer John Deere 525.

    The 525 would be more suitable for the few lawns I do however I read that the Kawaski engine is no longer available and no other engine would fit if it shoud need an engine in the future. http://www.smallenginewarehouse.com/RepowerItems.asp?Brand=John%20Deere&Model=525

    What are your thoughts on the 525??

    Thnxs guys for any advice.

    Thnxs heather. I will keep that dealer in mind.
