What do you guys think about this deal?

I am just starting off and already have a walk behind, but for $850, this wouldn't be bad to have.

Looks like a good buy to me. Make sure the hydros are good, those things can be expensive.

Although this doesn't look like a commercial model. Still not a bad buy...

Its not commercial. So keep that in mind. If your just starting out i'ld consider it, if you have a good amount of work lined up I would wait for a commercial grade mower.

If you are serious about cutting lawns, stay away. It's not built for cutting every day, and it's not a commercial grade mower. Why is the seller upgrading? That should tell you something.

Dude, go pro or go work at McDonalds! If you cannot afford a commerical mower, you can't afford to fix that one! Its not worth the hassle.

That mower is a total piece of junk, nearly worn out at 100+ hours and way overpriced. I was a servicing dealer for Troybilt and they are the absolute junkiest of the junk made by MTD. They do not cut, handle, or hold up well, even when brand new.
Stay away, far away from that turd.:nono::nono::nono:

That would be kind of dumb wouldn't it. The guy is only asking $850 for the junker in the add.
