The last year I worked in a dealership we sold several. Seemed to be a solid piece of equipment. I serviced one of those units on a yearly basis after I left the shop in 2002. Didn't experience any unusual problems--normal service items, oil, oil filter, air filter and plug. Replaced one throttle cable. The location of the air filter was my only criticism, particularly when used it dusty conditions. A remote air filter someplace other than under the bed would have been a better choice.

$4900 for an 11 year old unit seems a bit steep. Looking around on equipment sites, I ran across an 06 with 500 hours for $3250 and another with no description for $2900. The best advice I could suggest is to find a Snapper dealer and ask them about used stuff. In my humble opinion, the add on stuff is something the owner is going to have to take a hit on unless he finds exactly the right buyer.

Just my opinion--your mileage may vary.

Dutch is absoltely correct....
Even if it were in showroom condition, there are a lot of rubber parts that don't like being 11 years old.
Keep on shopping.
