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:

Re: Ultimate 21" Mower

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."

Re: Ultimate 21" Mower

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.

Re: Ultimate 21" Mower

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.

Snapper P216012 with Tecumseh TVXL-840
Snapper MRP216517B with Robin EH18V
McLane 801 series edger with Honda GX120
Echo SRM-225 trimmer
Echo PB-250 blower

Dayton 750 watt baby generator w/ Kawasaki FA76
20 gal portable air compressor w/ Honda GX140
2600 psi pressure washer w/ Cat pump and Robin EX21
Plenty of spare engines!

Re: Ultimate 21" Mower

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...
