I am considering making the jump to a large walk behind mower to save me some time and take the stress of my knees on the hill.

Right now I am talking with a gentleman for a 32" exmark metro mower with 50 hours on it. Looks to be in good shape. If I buy it, i want to get a sulky to throw on the back so I can go side to side on the hill and not destroy my knees. That said, he wants a $1,000 for it. Is that a good deal? It has a 12.5hp Kawasaki engine. Looks like it might be 7-8 years old, but in pretty decent shape.

I would love to hear your thoughts... Any advice on what questions I should be asking?

Thanks guys...Warren
Get the model and serial #'s. I'm almost certain it's older than 8 years old just by the engine. Also doubt it only has 50 hours since these never came with an hour meter to begin with.
