I have been looking for an older quality lawnmower instead of the cheap ones from the big box stores. I have found a JD 445 that seems to be in decent shape with less than 1500 hours for what seems to be a great price. I spoke with the current owner and he says that the motor runs strong, transmission has no issues but the deck will not raise. It has a 60" deck that is raised using hydraulics. Is this a normal problem with these tractors? Easy fix or really expensive? I am planning to go look at it tomorrow and would like to know more from the experts before making any decision...Thanks in advance!
