I picked up a JD 355D today and it looks like it will be fun to rehab. It runs great and has a new, battery, belt and blades along with a nice high back seat. The hood and side panels are trash but the grill is still good. It has a good 48-inch deck and new front tires. It has 411 hours on it. Man! I had forgotten what a two cylinder Yanmar sounds like! What a racket. It smooths out just like all Yanmars once it is out of the low idle position. Power steering was tight and the diff lock worked. This little tractor was a real Cadillac when it came out. The nice guy that I bought it from said he got it from the original owner who installed blades upside down and then hated it because of a bad cut! The guy I bought it from has a 1994 455 that is in really nice shape so he no longer needed this 355. I told him to let me know if ever wanted to sell it but he just laughed. Calm down, I'll have pictures tomorrow! Oh, it comes with a box of ear plugs!
