From what I have seen so far, this has to be the most informative tractor site on the net. Need advice on new JD purchase: I am trying to decide on whether to buy a 09 X320 w/ 65 hours for $2900 (from dealer) or a 99 GT235 w/ utility cart included for $1800 (private individual). I have 1.5 acres and some 30 degree slopes in backyard. May want to add a snowthrower on it too for the MI winters. Any recommendations?? Thanks!

Thanks Jim. It's great having knowledgeable folks such as yourself helping me along with the process!
Mike, I'm in Oxford. How about you? As for Bruce's question, the ad didn't list hours, so I will call the owner. Do you know if the 99 unit has an hour meter??
Thanks Donald. Congrats on the incoming X500. If you decide you don't like it, please send it my way. I'll even offer to drive it home!!
Sergeant, you are a wealth of info. Thank you for the great suggestions. :thanku: So, if I just plan on mowing and throwing snow, either machine would fit the bill, although the GT might give me more options down the road. Plus, I like the K71 serviceable trans vs. a sealed one.

I just have to decide if I want to spend more on an 'almost' new X320 or save a grand on an older 99 GT, which could have 800 hours on it. Should I just flip a coin??:banghead3
