If $4500 isn't a quick sale on that quality of a mower, I don't know what is, brother. $3200 is like giving it away to the nearest thrift store. But hey, it's your money. If I lived anywhere near you I'd take full advantage of your generosity and pay you your $3200 as quick as humanly possible. Then, I'd quick as humanly possible put the mower up on craigslist as soon as I got home and sell it that night for $4500 cash. In this world, it NEVER MAKES SENSE to leave money on the table...I don't care if you're Donald Trump! Don't confuse wanting to sell something now with selling for a reasonable and attractive number. $5500 on that mower is a longer sell that you'd have to workk for...not $4500. $3200, like I said before, is a donation. I'd buy all the Turf Tigers you owned for that sum...every last one of 'em.

This reminds me... I had a guy come up to me while I was working at a property this fall and say I've got a John Deer mower for sale... 3000 dollars. I think it had 500 something hours on it, new it was near 7000. Heck of a deal. I called my dad and told him about it cause he was looking for one... he waited till that evening and it was already gone. Some folks just decide they want to sell something... so they decide on a price and sell it that day. I wish now I would have had him follow me to the bank and I would have payed for it that day. Could have then sold it to my Dad for $3500, lol.

Your gut instinct is usually correct on mower buys

It has been my experience in the buying and selling game that when a guy prices a mower cheap, you jump on it with both feet. They might have a little problem with the mower that keeps them griping, and finally they say the hell with it...I want it gone. Well, that problem might be a dirty carb, dirty air filter, needs hydro fluid, whatever. You buy that mower right and there is ALWAYS a buyer. I've never ever been stuck with a good commercial mower. And that's a lot of years counting...
