A good used commercial mower will serve you for many years and cost a lot less than a new one. I bought a 48" Scag Tiger Cub for $3200 with 1200 hours on it. For 1/2 the price of a new one, I can afford to make some repairs to it if necessary. I'm planning to run it until I'm too old to mow my own grass.

depending on yard size........

<1.5ac hustler mini fasttrak--$3900-$4700 msrp

>1.5-3ac hustler fasttrak--$5100-$5900 msrp

you should be able to buy for about 10-20% below msrp

Best warranty and factory support.
go to the hustler forum and read up on these two models!

I agree with looking at the used commercial market, just be careful.
After a long search I found a used Gravely PM-34Z for $3100 on E-Bay.
It was a little smaller then I wanted but at 5 months old and 72 hours
it filled the bill.
Also distance from seller is a major consideration cause shipping is a B----!
I went 120 miles one way for this unit. I also purchased only after going over the unit in person. (Yeah, it is much easier to buy new but...)

If he is using it for his own lawn it should last many years. No reason for a com for your own home if you don't have the money.
