Wanted: Turf Tracer in the Maryland Area

Hey all,

I have been looking for a few weeks for a 48 or a 52 inch turf tracer in the Maryland area. I am willing to travel up to three hours and I am in the Frederick, MD area. PA, VA, WV, DC. Anyone have anything? I am trying to stay away from a viking as I want the floating deck, and electric start is a big plus. I don't need new but I don't want anything destroyed.

Thanks.

-Ben

I do have a 60" available. 2010, with a Kohler 20hp, floating deck, ecs controls, electric start. It has about 1029 hrs on it with new rear tires. I will let it go for $2500.

thanks fatboy...

i have called him "Jason" multiple times with no call back. I was scheduled to buy a 52" from him two weeks ago. I sold one of my riders to make funds available. My wife went into the hospital in Baltimore 20 minutes from his home on Monday the 8th for heart surgery and I had scheduled with Jason to purchase his mower on Wednesday of that week. I was talking to him Tuesday night about the details. Wednesday morning he sold the mower to someone else. He's an *******, and now will not return emails or phone calls about his other mowers he has available.

that being said he sold a 52" with a 23 hp engine and electric start for 1900. no wonder people jumped on it. But if you agree to someone on something you should honor your agreement.

That sucks Jason did that to you.He sells a bunch of mowers. I've been out his house before.I bet he's been stiffed a bunch and figured a bird in hand.Still it wasn't right.On a side note if you can hold out for a 23hp 52"tt I think you will like it better then the 19hp hp versions .I absolutely love mine what a great cutting machine.This is the first v twin Kohler engine I've owned and MAN is it alot quieter than my Kaws.
