Yeah, agree with Lawnman. Total hours on it. PTO needing replaced? hmmm. Ignition module too. hmmm. Need total hours to really say whether it's worth it. For 3k. Only if the THN was low (Total Hours since New)

i think it not too bad. it is sad though. it seems you can get a better price when selling a 36'' mower then when selling a 60''. last two ztr iv sold i got $2400 and $2700. its hard to get alot of $ for them.

Looks like you could have north of $3500 in it pretty quick. I say no.

If you know how to properly inspect a machine this would be a great deal. Not much of the major parts haven't been replaced.

Mower has 1300hrs the guy bought it for a 6acre property. He went through and replaced everything that could give you problems wither it needed it or not so he wouldn't have to worry about it. Used it last year then the property was sold and he has no use for the mower now. What would u guys think a fair price would be?
