Hmm

Hard to tell without looking at it, but my guess is that it's worth at least $4700 to $5300.














Actually I've never heard of Byers at all and don't have a clue. Just thought I'd throw in an April Fools response.

I take it you are getting it from an individual not a dealer. Where did they get it from it would be nice to have some dealer support if you do intend upon buying it. I would look into some of your local dealers for some used units first. They usually will stand behind what they sell to keep you as a customer.

Byers -- sounds like a headache

You must know some reputable dealers in your area, price their used stuff.. If buying from an individual go to a dealer that handles that equipment and ask him to look up the retail price for that piece of used equipment.. Dealer might not be able to sell you a mower but at least he will profit from the repairs that you will be needing. My advice - walk away from this (quickly).
