    I think 22hp is low for a 60 inch...

    Do you think that is a good deal? It only has 740 hours. Do you think that is too big for residential yards?

    Not a bagger with a spindle driven blower... I run a 27/61 a lot (Grasshopper) with a bagger, and it is just barely enough power.

    That should be fine. How much are you getting it for?

    Just so I understand, a nine year old mower for $2,600.00?
    Hour meter time is irrelevant as those things fail constantly unless it is a true Hobbs meter.
    Maybe, just maybe $1,800 if the paint isn't chipped/rusted/motor has uniform compression and passes a leak down test.
    Max for an antiquated unit like that with parts availability issues from a dealer may prove to be a problem unless the dealer services a market inundated with old machines.
    Depending upon the residential turf site sizes a 60" mower may not be too large.
    If you are solely buying it for your place and personal or as an occasional back-up unit use I'd say it was worth a look.
    But not at $2,600.00.

    As a primary machine, simply put - no way.
