I spoke to my brother in law this evening and he said his boss is selling his JD155 (2004) because it never gets used. It is in mint shape with hardly any hours. I have read that some of the lower JD's have tranny problems. The price seems pretty good to me ($800) considering the low hours and shape of the mower, but would hate to spend money on a mower and then lose the tranny. Any advice? I'd be using it to mow about 1.5 acres that are relatively flat.
