If it runs well then $400 is a deal. They are decent mowers. I used to run 5 of them about 15-20 years ago. They haven't changed. But that sulky needs to go lol...

That is a pretty good motor on it if it is a 420V. They don't cut any where near as good as an Exmark (or probably most new mowers these days) or throw the grass as good. But they are decent on most yards. The blade speed on them is sub par.

It looks like its a Hydro drive too. If it runs that would be a awesome buy.

Yes, i even got them to 360 for me to take it off their hands.

they say it works starts right up, they have not used it for over a year so it needs a tune up

I was just skeptical since its so cheap, but i have gotten lucky in the past, got a mint condition 92 isuzu box for 2 k and is working great
