does this price sound good for eXmark?

One of my buddies is leaving the mowing business for the most part and told me he would sell me his mower. its a 3 yr old Exmark Lazer (AS i think) 60" ultra cut, 31 hp briggs with 9xx hours on it. it has been well maintained and i have ran the mower quite a bit this past winter doing leaves. it also has the suspension seat. he told me he would sell it to me for 4500 does that sound fair to you???

Sounds a little high. 3500 would be a fair price for you.

fair price

if it has the bagger and has been maintained and don't look bad, 900 hours isn't bad. I think that price is more than fair.

it does not have a bagger, and it has been very well maintained.... and it runs good also like i said ihave used the mower several times... if this is too high just let me know what you think i could get a similar one for i just havent seen any go for that price unless they were 8 years olf with 1600 hrs...

Not a bad deal, if it was clean I'd give that.

If it's in good shape, that's not too bad of a price. Check the casters, struts, and stuff like that. That stuff will may soon have to be changed.

I'd go to my dealer and ask what he would give for it as a trade. He should have books on that but 4500 is to high more like 3400.00

one thing i do know is my dealer sold in late fall a 5 yr old exmark with 19** hours 60" 25 hp kawi i think, that looked rough as hell but had all new spindles bearings etc etc for 4850 cause he tried to get me to buy it... the exmarks are high around here thats why i thought this sounded really fair because its a very clean machine and my friend is the onlyy person to ever use it other than myself so i know its been maintained
