I am by no means an expert but that seems way overpriced. Just my thoughts from other ones i have seen for sale.

Well like i said, i don't have one or anything whatsoever but figure this, once the mower leaves the lot, it is only worth about 1/2 if its original price and 5000 is NOT half. Like i said, i have no idea of a good price, i just know that 5000 is too much! Sorry i couldn't help any further, oh one idea is the check ebay to see what they are going for!

That is a lazer hp, not the same thing though! Good Luck, sorry i couldn't offer a price quote. Maybe i was wrong, but like i said, "Just my thoughts" and "I am by no means an expert." I was just stating what i thought.

I probably wouldn't. I would rather have the new machine for about $1500 more. It will last a lot longer and you will know the service history, etc.. If your financing it out your payments won't be that much higher.

Really. I know 5K seems high but 2K seems pretty low.

$2000 is a fair price to a buyer
$3500 is a fair price to a seller
$2,750 would be about fair to both
I would not pay much over the 2k, the mowers 3-4 yrs old and I have no idea of the service it would have recieved. Every yr theres a bunch of guys going out of business that sell the mowers and equipment the purchased the previous yrs for less than 50%

I disagree, that mower now lists for $7999. Granted its a 2002, but that is very low hours. That machine is the best seller and hardest for them to keep up with demand at certain times of the year.

A factory rep at eXmark I know well says the depreciation they kinda use for input to dealers on used equipment is about $5 per hour. Subtract that from the original cost.

2002 that machine was about $7200.
550 hoursX$5=$2750
7200-2750=$4450

I know these 52" HP's like the back of my hand. $5k is to high, probably $3500-$4000 would be about right...that is assuming its in top notch shape.

The mower has oil changed every 35-40 hours. Kawi Synthetic was used at each change. The mower is very clean with one exception...the paint is missing where your feet rest, and the anti-skid has curled as well. Other than that there are no dings, dents, breaks or cracks. Just needs a bath. There are also maintenace records for every hydro filter change.

$5000. is way to high . With 550 hours $3000. is a fair price.

I agree with you hoss. I own this machine as well ad your looking at $8,000 plus tax for a new one. The hours are low and as long as it has been maintained as you described, I would say $4,000-$4,500 all day. I see guys getting $3000 all day for used commercial z-turn mowers with 1500 hours on them.
It's not a car that depreciates half price when you take it off the lot. Just my 2 cents. Good luck.

I wouldnt pay more than $3500 but would try to get it for around $3000. If it came with a bagger system that might be a different story, I would probably pay around $3800 for it.

There is always a buyer as the above quote shows. Be patient and someone would eventually pay the 5k. $2000 is nuts.

WHO pays list though? Knock at least a grand off your starting point then do the math.

Thanks for all the input.

Because I don't need to sell it, I'm going to ask about $4600 for it. I already have a few persons interested that know the machine so I have an advantage there. Since I'll have another mower to replace it before I try selling it, I won't be in a rush. I agree with gqnine44 if I wait, I think I'll get real close to 4200-4400.

Most people don't get a grand off the MSRP. Sorry.
But, most people would have paid $6900-$7200 for that machine that year.

As an example: We purchased a repo unit last spring...Feb. 2004

2002 Hustler Super Z, 25 Kaw, 440 hours, BacVac system, in good condition for $5000 (list for this machine with vac and stuff was almost 13,000)

In my mind this was a good deal and alot more machine for the money. Best thing is to be patient and shop around. Look for the deals, they're out there.
