Lot of older equipment it seems in this auction... more Jacobson inventory than I saw from last year.

They look like they need to be cleaned up, but I noticed a few 2015 JD 220SL’s. 4-5 years old is relatively new for a greens mower on the secondary market - especially at auction. Might be worth a look if someone is shopping.

I wouldn't mind having one of those greens rollers.

Lots of salvage listings, I wonder what exactly that means to them.

Full Disclosure: I will not be bidding on any items in this auction. If I was bidding, it would be for the pallet of transport wheels! ;)

For those of you who are bidding, good luck!

I totally agree with @Ware on 2015 being a great year of mower to purchase. However, those JD 220's look like someone parked them next to the ocean and left them. For 2015 units, there is an unbelievable amount of rust and oxidation. Who knows maybe it is a white dust on them? Hard to tell from looking at photos.

A tip for the first time buyers considering these mowers: Notice that they all lack groomers, kickstands, transport wheels, & grass baskets. Personally, I would rather have a 2012 with everything included for less money from the next auction.

Also, did anyone notice that there are not any photos of the serial numbers for these JD units which is typically normal during a Weeks Auction?

Lastly, who is responsible for spraying for weeds at Weeks Auction??? :shock:
