Have an opportunity to acquire a used John Deere riding mower with pulling
attachment and a pull behind trailer. Does not run, motor turns freely,
external housing is damaged up front and will not close. Owner is
physically incapable of doing repairs. Owner said a debtor failed to repay
a loan, and left this behind when he left the state, so he took possession.
Don't want to get into the legalities, just the John Deere itself.
How much is it worth? Parts availability? Should I consider it at all?
Am single, live in rural area, have complete set of tools, no air tools. My
brother is a John Deere trained technician with 20+ years on farm style
tractors, but has no experience on the "little-bitty stuff" he says.
