That's a great idea for buying a vehicle. That long drive home with a new to you vehicle is nerve racking.

So far on the mower I have replaced all the hydro lines, belts, and fluids, and spent about half a day cleaning it up, but after I did my magic I think I have a very reliable machine for cheap! Paid $3000 with bagging system and 60" JRCO Rake





On the Permagreen, the guy thought the transmission was bad, but all it needed was an adjustment to the belt drive tensioner Paid $450



The sprayer he had never used, and didn't know if it worked. Primed the pump and cleaned about 5 years of sludge out of the carb and now it starts without being choked and works great! Paid $150

^^ Solid Lawn Tiger. That looks awesome! For the price that is a solid steal! The bagger system is clutch on that!

Picked up a Ferris IS2000 25hp Kawi with 52" deck with only 77.1 hours on it last week for $5,300! Looks like brand new, I'll try to remember to post some pics.

Not sure about the others, mine came with a receipt, original sale tag from the dealer for $8,595, and original manuals so pretty sure it was legit : )
