I just picked this machine up. I found on the JD site the engine was produced on 8/1999 so I believe the hoe is a 99 or 2000 model. Lot of it looks new, tires, all pins tight like new... no rust anywhere. Purrs like a kitten. They said owner kept it indoors. Hours showing only 230 and the meter is working but I find it hard to believe a 20 year old machine with only 230 hrs. What do you all think?
