I have relatives in San Marcos that recognize this dealer, so it's at least a semi-legit ad. I'm all too familiar with the Deere scam, but this one was different for some reason. I'm seriously weighing my options at this point, and will try to call today or tomorrow.
Thanks for the pointer that it's a 2210 - now I need to figure out just what that is. I've put all my research over the last three years into the garden tractor series, only lusting after the SCUTs. I've got a major landscaping project coming up, and I'd rather own the equipment to do what I can when I can, that rent the equipment to try and get as much done as I can, whether I'm ready for it or not.
