Not being able to actually fire up two ?1994? models what would you bid for these mowers. One has1072 hr. and the other has 974 hr. . These were maintained, or lack there of, by Cessna Aircrafts maintenance dept. There is old gas in the mowers, flat dry-rotted tires and they never actually went through lay-up procedures. I have talked to a tech rep at Hustler and he told me what needed to be done to get them up ad running. I figure it will cost around $250.00 to do what was told me by the rep. Last year new the mowers went for 8-9K. With the age, hours, and not being able to fire them up, not to mention the reconditioning cost of $250.00, I am just not sure what they are worth or how much to bid. Does anyone have any thoughts/comments?
