Lesco Z 2 on ebay with only 200 hours

OK, I want to see how far off base I am. Now if a new MTD Lesco Z 2 is 6899 then with my Mr. Haney formula it should bring around 50 cents on the $ of a new one. I figure it to go for around 3600$.

Could someone please provide the link? Thanks!

I can't get it to upload but you can go to www.ebay.com and put in the search bar Lesco 60" Z 2 and it will pop right up.

And your point to all of this would be what???....
To say "hey look at me... I like being a pest so much that I don't mind looking like a moron."


News flash.... most commercial mowers do good to bring 50 cents on the dollar used.
Especially when auctioned... unless a couple of dummies get to fighting over it.
Doesn't matter what brand it is.

Diesels and big-name brands will occasionally fair better... as in Toro or John Deere..

Case in point, I screwed up and screwed myself out of getting a 23/52" Scag with the collection system and almost no hours off Ebay for about what the bagger cost new. Why? at the time, the Scag fans were busy in a bid war fighting over a big Turf Tiger and the rest of the guys were doing the same over a Toro.

I am just curious as to weather or not the public is catching on to how high quality the Z 2 is as you say ? I mean according to you it is just as good as my Hustler spec for spec and 2000$ cheaper so it should fair well right? This is the perfect auction for my test.

B.s I find the products people want do well and the ones that don't follow the Mr. Hainey rule of 50 cents on the $!

I also agree there as good as any other brand out there, and better then most. Sounds like your mad they sell a mower for 2000.00 less, and you have to spend 2000.00 more to keep your image. Oh well for each their own. I'm satisfied with what I buy also.
