So Hard to put a price on these things, but brand new they ran from about $6200-$7000K brand new, considering the years and hours, maybe a good price, maybe not? The mower itself is indestructible, Scag builds a great mower, great seats too!! The question is the engine? Is this a Vanguard or an ELS?? 23hp sounds awful small for a 61" unless it is a Vanguard. There was some problems with those early ELS engines, something with the airfilters or housing for the filter, might want to look into to it, or maybe if someone in here knows. Overall sounds like you found a great machine and could work out very nicely for you.
