These new models coming out make it a good time to get a good deal on a end of season 2003. Working with my dealer now on a LX277 before there all gone and the prices go up to full retail with know pressure on them to move them out.

G110

Agree The outlets will be similar to one that can be found on the GT235e. To power your drill ect as JD put it to put nice round hole in your back 40. Basicly it will have it own generating system

G110

Sears offered a similar unit a few years back. I don't think they had a lot of success with it. With the advent of cordless power tools I can't see where this would be a demand item. I guess if you were doing a lot of remote location work where power tools were needed it would be a nice alternative.

Built in generator

Both Sears and JD offered it in 2002. Sears did not have much luck with it JD keeped it till 2003 in the GT235e and I guess the price you were paying for a GT235e it just never really caught on But I guess they will try it in the lower priced series to see how it does.

Hi All...newbie here and so happy I found this board. I just bought a 2003 GT235e for the $600 off sale...now I know why!!
I still think I got the tractor I really wanted in the 1st place..had a L130 I bought last year and was not comfortable mowing the d hilly part of my lawn. I also thought the GTe, with the built in generator, would be better than running 150ft of extension cord to the back hedges. The dealer will install the new 24X12 tires when he delivers it in the Spring.

I hope the fact that it is now a discontinued model will not hurt too bad on resale...but then again if I really really like it then that won't be a problem anyway.

Glad to be on board and look forward to reading all the great posts .

Being a discontiued model with less of them produced during the run might hold the resale value up over time. Probably would depend on how well the new model sells though.

I could certainly use a 12 volt outlet that can be accessed on a tractor. Seems like a great feature. I don't know how many times I need a circular saw at the other end of my yard for some project or another. Would also come in handy if you need a halogen worklight after hours for yard work that you ran out of sunshine for.

If I can do anything about it, this model to the left is being replaced by a yet to be named 2004 Green and Yellow model too!
