Does anyone know anything about this Exmark model? TriVantage Cutting Deck? I haven't contacted the guy, just looking now. Thanks.

Not enough information on your post. What Exmark? Trivantage decks seem to have pretty good reviews here on LS.

I called the guy and he lives about 45 minutes from me. He said it's a '03-'04 and has around 800 hours on it. I didn't know what one would be worth. I was just checking mowers out on Craigslist. He said he bought it from a guy that was in lawn services. Supposedly he can't use this in the yards he does now because of it's size, he has 2 W/B's.

That's a great deal on that mower.

That's pretty disappointing to me because it looks just like my mower, and I sure wouldn't sell mine for only $3200.

That looks too good to be true.

The Tri Vantage deck is the same as the Ultracut deck. I would check it out and offer him 2500. Keep in mind that engine only has about 800 good hrs left if it was taken care of before you'll have to start thinking about replacing it. If it is in great shape like it appears to be in the picture then offer him more. Pretty good deal.

If you do check it out, let us know what you think of it. It looks so clean in the pictures that I wonder if those photos might have been taken when it was still brand new. Even the tires look new compared to those on my mower, and since I'm a homeowner, I have a lot less hours on mine.

After talking on the phone to him again it sounds like there's a chance it could be "hot" to the touch. I think I'll pass on this one. Thanks for the help though.
