Is this a good deal? I don't know anything about woods mowers.

Thanks,

It is a POS. However, for $500 I'd gamble that it might last 50-100 hours before it cratered. $1800????? No way....

Woods are fairly decent mowers, but considering that if he didn't even bother to clean it to sell it how well do you think it was maintained? POS

That thing is going to be a big head ache. Get something with lower hours.

No...

What the guys are saying is that's got to be about the worst looking machine
any one of us has seen in a long time lol

And I realize a used mower isn't going to show spotlessly shiny, but it really
needs to look a little more presentable than that.

Now it could be that after you wash it down real good that out comes a nice little gem...
But there's just no telling, the guy obviously didn't do anything to it, other than he started it...
Probably got it at an auction, but it doesn't really matter.

Because for $1800 he got stuck with it, the seller doesn't appear willing to do the buyer any favors
so don't take his problem off his hands for that kind of money.

Peace

LOL the hr meter is definitely BROKEN! Only a 149 hrs? LOL!

If they are tinkering with the hr meter its probably not worth the hassle.

Offer 700.00, and clean it, change ALL fluids and belts, and you may have a gem like toppy said.
