I am looking for my first rider ZERO TURN MOWER, I am looking for something that is clean and solid but maybe has a blown engine or hydraulics and needs work, I am looking to save money by fixing myself. Under 54" cut width, and under $1200, thanx.

O.K, that sounds good, can u pm me more information, u say engine is good, did u get a repair estimate? I know it will be high from a shop, but that is where I will try to save by doing work myself? Also what size deck and engine?

52" trivantage deck 26 hp kohler, and i have no clue what it would cost to fix it, never have had time to take it in. i can take some more pics and maybe a vid to show how it cranks and runs

I have to check and see if I can justify the drive, I have been to Charlotte, NC before and it was 12 hour drive, I will weigh all the cost, that is a very reasonable price and I thank you for the chance, I will let u know!

what is your thoughts on a wright stander?? 48" bad engine... hydraulics could use upgrading... but is totally working.. just a lil slower than what I want. Just went thru and did a whole bunch of work this winter on it....
