I was looking for a truck a long time ago. Noticed they raised a used truck 500 every 6 months or so. Asked the sales guy why. He said because they had it so long and were losing money. I told him that makes no sense. You can't sell for 20k and what makes you think you can sell it for 22k and 2 years older?

Some mower dealers do the same thing. Old junk gets traded in, and they raise price every so often, or with seasons.

If dealers would price these used mower right from beginning to end, they would sell fairly easy. Who want to pay 6k for a mower that cost 8k 4 years ago and 2 thousand hours ago. If you think about it, that mower could cost you more than 10k if purchase such a mower.
