This is nuts. I cannot purchase a new John Deere E-140 lawn tractor anywhere in SW Florida. Everglades power equipment is the biggest JD dealer here with 17 locations and they can't come up with one. Neither Lowe's nor Home Depot have one within 100 miles. After spending almost a half-day on the phone, I finally threw in the towel and ordered a new carburetor for my ancient L-120. I have put way too much money into my present 17-year old John Deere, but I use it almost every day, and nobody will promise delivery of the new E-140 until after September 1. Maybe I'll buy some John Deere stock.
