    Well, They were approx $8500 new in 2000.

    It is at least a 2 if not 3 season old mower. And could be 4 years old from date of manufacture. With those hours on it it is 1/4 through its life at the rate it was used.

    I would offer $5K

    There have been a few improvements over the years and its no spring chicken.

    Mowers aren't investments.

    Good Luck

    Well,

    The way the stock market acted the past year, mowers may just be a more stable investment!

    :eek:

    I would go on the basis of $1,200-$1,5000 per year used. But you must also take into consideration the condition of the mower. Also, think that at $7,000 you are in the ballpark price of a lot of new models.
