To do or not to Buy.

Hey All.

Just got a call from a friend today. Hes had a 32" eXmark for the past few years using it for their back yard. The engine siezed up from who knows what, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was something having to do with a lack of oil.

My question is, he asked if I was interested in it. He was going to replace the engine, but decided not to. He also said to give him a price.

Is it worth it?!!

The deck, pistols, belt, tires, etc, are in decent condition. Is it worth putting a new motor on it? I would have a use for it for not only my property, but a few other gated properties that I just use my 21 on.

Should I? Or Should I Not?

Oh, and how much should I give him for it if I decide to do this? THANKS!

no idea on a price but if the price is right go for it. Look at some of the bigger local dealers to see what an engine would cost ya. Great mowers I wouldnt mind having one. offer him something rediculously low (250????) and see if he bites lol.
