Looking To Buy Used Turf Tiger

Found a 2009 or 2010 61" turf tiger, 29 horse liquid cooled Kawasaki engine with 940 hours. Does 6500 sound like a good price for this? I am in Texas and there are very few used around here. This one is about 5 states away. I think I am buying it. Getting a little excited. Any thoughts?

Does anyone know if this is a 10 mph model or 12 mph? It seems to vary depending on the engine option.

This is for home use. I have been using a 10 year old JD L110. Should be a bit different.

Sorry just had to tell someone. The wife and kids are not as excited.

Here is demo with 84 hours for 9800 3300$ more for a basically new mower. I would not buy one with almost 1000 hours for 6500. I would try to get it under 5,000$

I have heard good and bad. I know that was like a 15-17k mower new. Have you priced a tiger cat? You could probably get a new one for not much more.

I wouldn't pay that much but that mower is a beast. Cousin has one with 3000 hours and still running strong

Well I bought it. There was one on craigslist in Houston area for $3000, unknown hours or year but google satellite view showed area to be kinda rough.

The one I bought has the efi liquid cooled engine I wanted. It is all the mower I will ever need. I won't have reqrets that I should have gotten what I really wanted. I also don't think I could have justified to the wife spending 10 plus thousand on a new one.


Thanks for the replies.

Now to start looking for small tractor with fel or backhoe.
