"A picture is worth a thousand words".
Come on guys, this mower is like new. Even the paint on this is original - as it should on a mower with only 40 hours. It is not some refurbished mower that has been given a crappy paint job to hide it's condition.
Someone should meet this guy in/near Pawleys Island and buy it.
You will be hard pressed to get a mower in this condition for only $1000 next spring.
