Question for all the John Deere Fans

4 posts in this topic

I just picked up what I think is a gem. But I have some questions... It's an LX 185 Lawn Tractor. It has barely been used and in great shape(new battery, new belts and the pullies are in great shape. The deck is yellow. The tires are original and I mowed with it yesterday and it is awesome. Not a bad pick up for $300 I think.

My first question is, how do I find out what year it is?

Second, where can I find used attachments like a snow blower or plow.

Third, do you guys think that it was a good price???

Thanks guys!

You can find both (year and attachments) at your John Deer dealer. JD dealers often have used implements that came in on trade. The LX series are fairly light weight machines and I'm not sure if they support a snow blower. The GT series machines are what to look for if you want to use all of the attachments.

Looks like it's a 1985, and if it's a Lawn tractor you won't have the hitch to add attachments. "Garden" tractors generally have that, but "lawn" tractors don't. $300 does sound like a good price.

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!
    • He only got one? Had 3 more in my pocket!!; I didn't want them in cold spring!

    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
