2006 Hustler Super Z Value

I've been looking to buy a Hustler Super Z for a while and recently came across a 2006 with 72" XR-7 deck and a 25 hp Kawasaki engine. Model # 927913

I haven't seen it in person yet but it looks to be in very good condition with 460 hours.

Are there any issues with that year that I should be concerned about?

The guy wants $5500 which I thought was a little high but I wanted to get some input on what others thought it was worth.

I originally posted this in the Hustler section but I haven't gotten any responses.

Here's some pics of it. Let me know what you think. Thanks

Hydro pumps and wheel motors were an issue. Strips of uncut grass at heights above 3 inches.

25 HP is a little underpowered for a 72" deck IMO.

I'd rather have a bigger engine but what I cut is 3 acres all flat, no hills so I'm hoping it'll be ok.

You'll probably be alright, but you may have to slow down in thick and/or long spots.

The guy is willing to come down to $5000 but I still think thats a little high. He's also about 2.5 hours from me so that factors in somewhat.

Would $4500 be a fair price for it?

I feel that's a very fair price. For commercial use I would want more hp but that would be a great mower for someone like you in my opinion. That mower looks new! Maybe he posted pictures he took when he first bought it. lol

That's what I would offer if you have to drive that far to pick it up. That's 5 hours RT=
