John Deere X350.  Needed some love.   

Got half the fleet cleaned and dressed today.

The last photo is where it came from.

It's Texas.  They're flooded with Mexicans that will do it on the cheap.

LOL, no sir, but i did run the blades before i bought it to make sure they were not bent.

Well, we use a crew...and still will, this was bought for a few reasons.   I have no way to putting down fertilizer or spray for weeds...i have to use the neighbors rig and its frustrating b/c I have to wait for him to let me use his gear....its not feasible to get attachments for the golf cart.   

The goal here is to teach my son to operate this unit and for him to start mowing thus not paying a crew to do our yard....the next step is to have him learn how to use the edger or pay the current crew to justd edge...and have my son mow. ....we'll see how it goes.

Don't forget the part about teaching your son how to clean and detail it when he gets it dirty.  :uugly:

Thanks, it is cleaner than when I bought it. It was stored in an open air pole barn so it was very dirty and it has scratches all over it...There are a few places i want to try and polish out but it is amazing what Megs HD does...makes all the plastics look brand new.   The paint is rougher than I would of liked but the price was right for a rig this decked out and with the hours it had on it.  (97) . It has the V Twin Kawasaki engine in it.  The bagger option is 1K and the aerator attachment is 450 bucks.  It has 2 years of warranty left and I picked it up for 2900 bucks.   It was 400 more than what I wanted to pay but i think I did well in the long run.
