I know some listings talk about hours run.
What about age?
How do I determine if I'm getting a 'commercial' mower when I'm looking on Craigslist?
Craigslist is great if you know what to llok for in a used mower, we have had good luck but we only purchase mowers we currently run and have experience with. My advice is go to a dealer and look at their trade ins, yes there are salesmen who will try to sell you anything, but they still have a reputation to worry about if you are unsatisfied with your purchase.
