Bought a new to me walk behind

well guys went out last week and started up the zrt to get up some leaves and broke a rod in the 30hp kawasaki. mower had 4096 hrs on it. weighed my options and the block is cracked and i cant afford to replace the whole engine right now so the guy at the local dealer bought it off of me for $1,500.00. so i went out and bought a 52'' w/17hp kawasaki, bobcat walk behind.guy just replaced drive belts, all the fluids, plug, has a brand new set of gator blades and regular blades with it. comes with a sulkie also. has 870 hrs on it.

Im sorry man but i hate to tell you i think you got the short end of the stick here. You had a hydro Z with a bad engine, open that baby up and fix or just buy a new engine. Now you have a 10 year old belt drive walk..... See if you can get your mower back.

to each there own but i disagree. i had a hydro z with over 4000 hrs on it with a blown engine.

i bought a belt drive walk behind with 2'' bigger deck, 870 hrs on it and needed a $18 part

lets do some math

replace blown engine with new one because block is cracked -
30hp kawasaki - $3,285.00
2 weeks down time waiting for engine - $1250.00 ( three accounts i had lined up next week)

Total - Negative $4,535.00

54'' walk-behind - $650.00
belt - $18
to do three accounts after expenses taken out - $950.00
cash left over form selling zrt - $850.00

total - Positive $1,782.00

i completly disagree. im making money selling the zrt as i would be in the hole if i kept it!!! thanks for the concern though!
