walk behind

I dont know if this is the rite thing iam posting this in but:

Is there any way you could telll me if this thing is any good by looking at the pic he is sopose to be sending me more. It is a 48" exmark with a kawasaki on it. he said it ran last summer and it would run with a little tinkering? he also said he does not have the cover for the pullys so i would make one.

i dont care about how it's looks pretty like because i can re paint the whole thing

thanks in advance
Nick

Yeah don't waste your time or money. Your can get a brand new walk-behind for less than 5K with a warranty. That thing has seen better days years ago.

Looks pretty rough. How much is he asking for it? What do you need it for? I wouldn't touch that thing as a primary mower I depended on.

GOOD GOWD!! It looks like you will have to replace almost every piece on that thing...pulleys, levers, belts, bearings, the bars look bent, cables, brakes, etc. etc. If you were to pay for it, I wouldn't pay more than scrap value.

Wise words from our Ron.

Don't even take it for nothing, you'd be too tempted to waste time and money on it.


Good luck, Phil

Check the serial number, that just might be the very first mower exmark made. If you buy it you should go on antiques roadshow.

To be honest turf&snow, I'd be happy to pay him to keep it.

Good luck, Phil
