    IM INTERSTED IN BUYING THIS MOWER FOR MY EXPANDING BUSINESS.

    HERES HIS REPLY TO MY EMAIL

    "hello kevin
    the mower was used for landscaping , i am the origanal owner so the machine is taken care of. the mower is about 6 years old but not used for the full 6 years on a daily basis.
    origanal motor. machine is in exel. cond. and used as a back up mower. $1000 is a firm price and a great deal for any hydro mower. I am located in bethpage, if you are local come take a look. will send pics as soon as poss.
    thanks
    peter"

    Do you guys think this is a good deal.

    Does this year and model tend to have problems and do they cut well and hold up without problems.

    i was also looking at a older 13 year old 52" toro 12.5 hp kawi for $500.

    Which would you guys buy. IM thinking this might not be a time to be cheap and to possibly spend the extra $500.

    Please feel free to give me your honest opnions..


    thanks a lot.

    I would go with the Lesco for $1000. You won't be getting much for $500. And it sounds like the guy might have taken care of the Lesco. Of course, without seeing it I can only ASSuME.
