Used Wright Stander

What do you think a 3 year old Wright Standard (52") would be worth. The unit was a trade at our local dealer and the dealer completely rebuild the machine. New tires / hoses / bearings / re-paint / new labels / shoot etc. I believe the engine is a 25 kawi with 2000 hours on it.

Option 2:
New Wright Stander X (52") - $7800

The machine would be my main unit.

It's probably worth about $1500 to $2500. A large-frame Stander that works well rarely sells for under $1500; $2500 is pushing the top end for a 2000 hour Stander, but if the mower was refurbish, they might get that for it.

If you mow full time, and this will be your main mower, it probably will not last very long; but if you are part time, have a second mower, and can do your own maintenance, it might be worth considering.
