Thanks everyone !
I am trying to get a trailer lined up for tomorrow.
The mower isn't new and I can evidence of past repairs, however I think if
going to be a quality peice of gear, it's worth much more to put a few $$
IT, rather than to sink money into my 20 year old Murray Ride-on which has
been abused
all it's life ! (right?)

IE: you wouldn't dump money into a K-CAR, but you'd put a few bucks into a
Jetta TD, eh?

  If thats the liquid cooled 3cyl Kubota, its one of the best diesel engines
  ever built. I cant speak for the deck, but a neighbour has a 4cyl kubota
  tractor, loader and backhoe, and it is high quality goods.
