Not a real big issue, but when I emailed the seller to tell him that it's NOT a 2004 Lazer, he got all huffy with me. He said that it was sold new in 2004 to a homeowner.

I told him it was likely a 2000 model, and quite possibly SAT around the dealer for 4 years, but you cant list a mowers model year this way.

Like I said, no biggie, but I don't want anyone here getting burned.

That was the first thing I noticed, then the lack of the foot lift. And why the hell would you NOT put the gauge wheel on for the picture?

For 157hrs, this homeowner must have really scraped the crap out of stuff when trimming around it!

I was also putting this here incase one of the 25 bids was one of us.

Or if the seller was one of us :nono:

Oh, I almost forgot, the BIG thing that tipped me off was that it has the 23 hp Kawi, not the 27hp.

If you can get the model #, you can call exmark and find out when it was made.

A virtual dust bowl. Leaves have been falling due to drought, not the time of the year!

Nice! I hate leaves though. PITA to me. I have a bagger too, but you still need to haul and dump.

Thats a great bagger lawn scape. Do you like running your turf tires rather then the turf bosses? Im not real hip on the turf bosses. But ive never used the turf busters. I think that is what they are called.

I noticed a few mowers on there that were not what they seemed. I cant believe the prices for some of the junk on there. I was going to bid on a couple of Exmarks sold by the same lady. Her prices were unbelievable, she had a 2000ish Lazer Z60" with 345hrs for 2550 and a Lazer CT with 12 hours for 2700 I e-mailed her but she wanted cash only and she was in Germany but the mowers were listed in Montreal QB Canada. A little fishy, 2 days later they were removed from Ebay. ;)

The guy is a dealer, I wouldn't expect more than what is offered... Another pyrite seller, dime a dozen on ebay, comes free with popularity...

Well, I actually know the seller personally. I have had several business dealings with him, and he was honest and always followed through on his promises to me. I like him, and he seems like a real nice guy.
I would not rush to judgement here. He kind of buys and sells mowers as a sideline, so maybe he did not know this was an older machine when he bought it.

The tires are very aggressive. I don't know how they compare to any others as these are the only tires I've had on the machine.

I would just hate to see someone buy this mower thinking it's only a year old. When in reality, it could be up to 6 years old!

It's up over $5K! :dizzy: And for a 52" machine!

Yes, it looks like someone has "auction fever".

These are scams, and happen quite often. Machines are listed, and bidders are contacted that they will accept wire transfers only, and are requested to be sent out of the country, to an account and not an address. The seller refuses to give any information, let somone pick it up or inspect it, AKA ITS A SCAM! Once you wire the loser your money, you are SOL.
