OK, gang, my 79 year old father in law had his Sears lawn tractor stolen. I told him he ought to consider taking his $1000 insurance money, and buy a used, higher quality, even if it is 30 years old, lawn and garden tractor. He only mows a 1/2 acre tops with it.

I own 6 Cub Cadets which 4 of them are nearly 30 years old. Yes, they keep on running but there is always some maintenance. Even my oldest ones are worth atleast $1,000.00. JD models always sell for more than a Cadet or one of the other major brands. Mine are all garden tractors vs: lawn tractors

I would suggest going out and purchasing a new one at one of the big box stores which is just entry level. Another posibility is checking local newspapers for one that is nearly new and a step up in model for slightly higher quality.

Last year my neighbor who was 92 got another Sears. ....
