Central Florida. A customer of mine's (lawn maintenance) construction company will be re doing the drainage and resodding some sports fields. Part of the bid is to maintain the turf for at least 12 weeks after it is down. Specs call for a reel type mower to be used on the bermuda grass. They are quite expensive new huh!

New, yes but used - if you know what you are buying - not really.
For instance, I have a late '86 early '87 Toro 216-G utility tri-plex, around 540 true hrs, with a fresh spin and relief grind, new knives and set at 1.5" I'll sell for $4500.00.
New, the machine is around $18-20K.
I purchased this machine for an eleven acre athletic complex my company maintained, city reverted the contract to city employees, so no longer need the unit.
Shipping to Florida runs around $600.00 or so.
Buy the Neary 180 spin grinder I have with the mower for a total of $8,000 and I'll deliver the whole thing free.
I have family in the Orlanda and palm Beach/Broward county areas I want to see anyways.
Nice Try = You Suck Spelled Differently
