I have a Lesco 48'' Hydro. For $1,200 I'd deliver it to you. I'm in Ohio and have a buddy in WI. The machine is in excellent EXCELLENT condition.

Here is a link to it on CL:

Not saying it's a bad mower, Bill. But, parts for Lesco machines are becoming extinct since nobody makes them anymore.

Lol, that's bologna. Pumps and wheel motors on this machine are the same as on a turf-tracer (of same era) these are parker i believe. Blades are same as an exmark. What else is there? I buy all my filters for it a JD dealer.

LandscaperPro- If BILL wants to buy my mower i'm cool with that, if not I'm ok with that too. You don't see Bradley mowers too often or ever...

John Deere bought out Lesco. Lesco continued making this exact model up into the late 2009 then turned around and put the John Deere label on it-same machine. Parts are still available i'm sure.

I would not have guessed this since John Deere no longer makes any of their own push or commercial walk behind mowers. They are contracted out to a different manufacturer.
A john Deere dealer will not because they cannot cross any Lesco part #'s to JD parts.

The pumps, wheel motors aren't and never were JD parts but rather Parker and Hydro Gear. These have always been available and most likely always will since they are still used in many applications today.

Blades and belts would still be available since they are pretty well a universal size.

I don't mean to discourage him from buying a good mower of yours. We have many customers that still use Lesco and love their machines. I don't know why they discontinued them either. All I'm saying is it's getting harder to find aftermarket parts for Lesco's anymore. If you can't find it aftermarket and there is a John Deere part replacement, then buy JD OEM parts for your Lesco. A person will do what he has to do.

As for Bradley mowers, made by just because you don't see it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. They are up and running, currently building commercial mowers.

You can also buy some Scag, exmark, toro, Ferris, ect, filters at a John Deere dealer because a lot of them use the same canister type filters.
