what would you pay for a 04 exmark lazer with a 27hp kohler that runs good, everything works and in decent condition with 3300 hours?

I ask here because the only people who would want to buy it would be someone new to the business. Its not for sale, I just want to see what people think it may be worth.

i would have to see it but, it all depends on a few things, have the pumps and wheel motors been replaced, is the deck woren out and needs replacing, is the motor original, does it need replace ment, how tight are the controls. but with that about of hours, if i was going to buy it and it was in good shape i wouldn't see my self paying more than $2,500. but i am no expert so bring it to your dealer and ask them, my dealer does it all the time

I wouldn't buy a used mower with 3300 hrs.

I would go with $2500 too. Use it as a backup mower

What size deck does it have, a phazer 44" cut with a 27 HP would be mean

$2500 sounds fair.I just look at the hours and I know I wouldnt buy it with that many hours, but since I own it I think its worth the money.

If that 3,300 isn't a typo I wouldn't give squat for it.

I consider 3,300 super high hrs. It doesn't matter how good the regular maint has been, a usability issue is more likely than not right on the horizon.

hydro pump and wheel motors have already exceeded their oem lifespan but that is common.

so what is it worth? who knows if it could last just 1 week with me on one of
my larger routes it would generate thousands so whats it worth? you decide....

I'd maybe pay $500 for that. Maybe 1k if it's in really nice shape, but I'd look for a little less "used" mower.

There is a seperate area on this site for Mower questions, not trying to be rude but some people could really care less about cutting grass.

mowers like that at my local auction would do good to bring $800..that would be about the same as 400,000 miles in a truck.

I am thinking my mower is worth $2500.

It's worth whatever scrap iron is bringing. 3300 hours is way too much time for me.

It's worth whatever scrap iron is bringing. 3300 hours is way too much time for me.That would be in the neighborhood of $25-30. I just did this thread for fun because I knew what people would say (I would never buy a mower with that many hours either, but that doesnt mean it has no value). The funny thing though, I did the same type of thread a while back when the hours were around 22-2500 and people seemed to think it was worth less then. Go figure.

I was told stay away from anything 2000 hours or more.

I was actively looking up until a few weeks ago. But will stay with my current equipment until spring. I also didn't sell my motorcycle so I will be thrilled I still have it as the days are warm and spring shows up again.
