54 Fastrak Trade In

I have a 2011 Fastrak 54 with a Kawi FS engine w/80 hours. I mow about 3 acres, all fescue and I want to upgrade to a SuperZ 60". I know it is a bit overkill, but I also mow my parents and inlaws as they are getting a little too old to maintain their lawns.

Has anyone worked with a dealer to trade in their model for another?

Do you think you would get a fair price on the trade in?

Would it be better to sell it outright?

Thanks for the help!

I would ask your dealer if he would sell it on consignment. It's a long story why, but the short of it the dealer is limited on how much he can give you. Remember he has to pay off the machine you just left with, fix your machine and try to resell it to get his profit back from the new machine he sold you. I would look at ebay or craigs list for your machine and get it's value from there.
