2012 Exmark 60" S Series DEMO??

Hi. I found this mower (27HP Kohler) with 40 hours. Price is $7600.

I'm going to check it out, but it's a couple hours away. But, it seems like a great deal.

What do you think? It's a demo but still sold as new and covered under full warranty.

Thank you.

Anyone?

Risks with a demo, or should I be good since it's covered under warranty? I'd be saving a good chunk of $$$ with this.

Thanks.

I've attached some pics here. It's a big trip to get over to see it, so I'm trying to check things out as much as possible ahead of time.

But, it's a dealer/demo with low hours, low price. Demos OK? Not sure what to be concerned about, how much can they be beat on.

Thanks!

I would say yeah it would be a deal if it was an X-series but its not. I wouldnt buy it. That about what they cost brand new. I would be looking at SCAGS if I were you. Better built and better cut

Appears to be in good condition, is that a good price i dont know the prices over there. One thing it doesn't have a suspension seat or a deck lift stand both things i consider essential. I guess you could get by without the stand on reflection but not that seat, a short demo and you will see what i mean. cheers ,Ross

Thanks for the feedback, everybody.

StihlBR600 - I'm wondering about your comments. The new S is over 9K. Thew new E (larger tires, new pumps) is mid-8K. I can't find an X anywhere near this price. From what I've seen, this is the absolute best price that I've found on a new one. Should I keep looking?

When I was looking for mowers last year, I am recalling the s series were around $8,400. Call Kerrys in Mechaniscsburg Pa and ask them. The should be about an hour and a half away from you. They had the best prices of any dealer around here
