Guy is asking $800. It is an exmark 36" belt driven. Model # V3612 5k05, I was curious how old this is? I tried googling the model # but can't find anything on it. Any advice? He is also selling a 54" lesco hydro for $1200 model # 703690 which in your opinions would be the better deal? Or maybe make a package deal offer of like $1500 for both?

I see, I was entering the model # incorrectly. The guy told me it was 4 years old lol.

No, you're fine it was close enough for paperwork but lessons learned, and not that it made much of
a difference in this case but you always have to get the serial number, too.

That having been said, if the guy's telling you it's 4 years old I would likely just stay away from that,
not saying the guy's a liar but if he can't figure out the actual age of the product he is selling
then there's no telling what else he doesn't know and if you want a good machine then you should
probably look into buying it from someone who can answer your questions straight.
Well, at least the simple ones for sure.

Peace out

I ended up buying a 48" lesco with 1001.6 hours on it instead. Can't find the model # yet so I don't know how old it is. Paid $1200 for it. It looks identical to this model http://www.lawnsite.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=163980&d=1255204725
