I had a JD L133, I'd rather have the older 4212 LOLI got home with it about 9pm.....and I think it is not too bad. I gave him the $100 for it he was asking. It has some sun fade on the body paint. I hope to buff it up and bring it back enough that I don't have to do a paint job on it in order to get the "pretty" back in it. The tires are going to need tubes at the very least. If I keep it, I'm thinking I'll put new used tires on it when I get a chance. I aired the tires up while there (no, lighter fluid!) with my air compressor. But by the time I was home with it, 25 miles away, they were all pretty much either flat or not much air left in them. Slime may not handle these weather cracks! Engine turns over, with good compression ( by feel, not gauge), so I think drain the oil and gas, clean the carb, stick a battery in it, and see what we have. He traded some contract work for a practically new JD La 130, and the 4212 was what he mowed with until he got the JD. But that was nearly 2 years ago. I'll post photo's as I work along with it.
