Hello. I am in the process of trying to purchase a 1995 Yardman 998. It seems to be in good shape from the pics. It comes with a 50" deck, 54" blade, tire chains and weights. Are these decent tractors? It has a 18HP Vanguard that the owner claims as having around 30 hours on it. What would be a comparable John Deere model size wise? I cut about 5 acers of grass a week and I started the season with a JD LA130, but it was killing the machine. I sold it and bought a commercial Gravely Zero turn but am looking for a spare tractor to cut grass and also have a plow for winter, plus I just like to have a tractor in the garage. Any info or input is appreciated. Thanks.
