Found one about a days round trip away, $3,000, with mulch kit. She has a 48" deck powered by a 19 horse Kawasaki and has a meager 250 hours on it. What do you guys think? Im a small operation and will probably be getting out in a few years, what do you project the value of this gem will be in a few years with say 500-750 hours on it??

What do you have to say, good/ bad about it?

Sounds like a good deal, one of those new would be around $8000. With only 250 hours on it, it should still be in good condition. The nice thing about this quik trak is that when you do decide to get out in a couple years you could still keep it as a personal mower and not have it be overkill for your yard.

The 647 is the very best mower I have ever tried. Awesome cut, beautiful stripes, and is very comfortable to use. It's incredibly fast too. The 7-Iron deck is fantastic, doesn't clog so easily, and does far better in wet grass than anything else. $3000 is an AMAZING deal for one of those, especially with only 250 hours. That would normally be a $4500 mower, and will still be worth $3500 once it has 750 hours on it. Go for it. That's a find of a lifetime.

yea, if that thing is in good shape, you should have that mower for quite a long time. I wish it were closer to me, I would be all over that.

i find the same thing all of the time, mowers for sale every where except here. its still an 8 hour drive round trip if i went strait there.


i was just thinking what if its cheap for a reason, if the hydros or something are goin bad i wont be able to tell, it was a trade in so hopefully they found it to be in good enough condition to put their name on whadda think??
