Hey guys, I came across this mower on craigslist. Looks like a dang good deal, only 1 hour!

I am really trying to talk myself OUT of buying it since I do 90% residential and I think this mower might be too big for them.

Any thoughts on this mower? Good price?

Decent price, see if you can transfer the warranty, that'd be important.

It blows my mind that some guys out there are willing to buy a BRAND NEW mower for a back-up unit, and then never, orhardly ever use it, then sell it and loose that much money on it.

My opinion, if you want a back-up machine for your only, say 60" machine, buy a new one and put the old one in the garage for the back-up. Or, if you don't want a new one yet, but feel the need for a back-up, find a good used one for half the price, or less, than a new one. But that's just me I guess.

The whole thing don't make a whole lot of sense to me...
Wouldn't be the first time I seen a peach for sale where there was really a lemon underneath.
A sour half-rotten one at that lol and that's if there's anything at all...

Sorry to be this way but why would someone spend 8 or 9 g's and never use a machine,
then a year or so later try and still get top dollar for it?
Even if the warranty transfers it's dang near expired.

Sounds to me like maybe now the guy can't afford the payments?
And maybe not but I'd give the man 6g's for it and wish'm luck.

That's assuming the call and subsequent trip or what have you isn't a waste of my time.
I ain't playing with these folks.

25HP for a 60 inch deck..... I would at least get a 27HP. I think Kohler had a problem with the seals or the bolts on that motor. Make sure it doesn't blow smoke.

I agree. 25hp really isn't enough, 27 is minimum for a 60" unless you plan to run slower and not cut a lot of thick heavy stuff.

I think it was 3 or 4? years back that kohler had some problems, but I thought it was the 20hp. I remember I had a 25 on a dixon, and a couple other guys got the 20's at the same time. both theirs blew out the oil pan seal or something like that... oil dumped while mowing = new engine.

I had that exact same mower, plenty of power in my opinion. That was probably the best mower exmark ever made, in my opinion.

That's what that almost same exact mower sold for brand new back in 2001. My how times have changed. You could get either the 23 Kawi or 25 Kohler with 60" UltraCut deck for $6999. A buddy of mine bought one of each and still has them both. They're getting tired though.

Had a 19 Kohler on a 48" Replaced engine 2 X because rings would never seat. Got rid of it and will never buy a kohler again!

Mower is sold and it was not a scam. I got a really good deal on that machine so I broke even.
