How much is my mower with?

Hey guys,
My parents recently just split up and when my dad moved out he left his mower since he doesnt need it at his new place, and my mom now has a lawn service so she doesnt need it anymore, and thus i come to you for help. I know close to nothing about mowers and have no idea how much this thing is worth or what i can get for it.
The mower is a Metro Exmark with a Kawasaki FH430V 15HP engine. Its gotta have no more then 100 hours on it, and its a couple years old, but in great condition, can anyone give me an idea of how much i could get for it?

Age, hours, and overall condition. There isn't a guide or actual book value to equipment. Just go off of what is comparable.

Split up or divorced? I'd sure hate to sell something before the divorce is finalized.
