Ultimate 21" Mower
 
I think I may have found it. It's made by John Deere. It's called the "Green Machine." It's essentially a 14SC, no BBC, 5 speed, and get this, a Robin engine. I've never seen one but for today. This one dealer has lots of NOS mowers. They had 2 Ryan Turf pre-compliance machines. They also had 2 Toro P21s. Here's the Green Machine, sorry for the crappy pics:

I'll see how much I make this summer. If I make enough, I'll buy it. I'm not worried about it being sold. That sign is covered in dust and filth. They also had another one.

That dust could be a good haggle point. It's been there for a while, and the bottom line is they want to move it to make way for new inventory. If it's still there when you have the money, try to knock the price down by about $50. The worst they can say is "no."

The other one was NOS for $759. This one is a demo. A little dirty. If I have this machine, a 22040, and the Liberty, my collection will be complete.

Oh wow, that's rare. Ive never seen a JD with a Robin engine. It's got the EH18v which is an ohv 6hp (gross hp)model. Have any idea what year this mower is from? They used that same engine on some Snappers until 2003/2004 or so.

OMG! the rarest of the rare!. i have only seen this mower in a brochure. its the robin 6.5 hp which is a total beast. i have one on a snapper and its unstoppable. super heavy. i actually have all the stuff needed to build one of these green machine clones. thought about it. this mower is really for sale? they havnt sold this since the early 90,s. wonder if the dealer would ship!? i have a huge store of robin 6.5 parts. first that ultra rare deere 12pcshows up on here and now this!

Re: Ultimate 21" Mower
 
deere bought green machine in the early 90,s and sold stuff under the then well known green machine name. didnt catch on and the name was sold to fuji-robin-still didnt catch on.name died out.

Holy cow, that's awesome. So it really is legit. Seems too good to be true. I guess I don't need to worry about it much since I'll never find one. I'd hate to think what it must weigh with that Robin OHV...

Re: Ultimate 21" Mower
 
i still have the brochure with the specs-it weighs a whopping 130 lbs if i recall. but i can dig up the brochure. there was a push version as well.
