    I have a 2001 Exmark Lazer Z HP 52" / 23 Kawasaki that has only about 100 hours. I am a part timer, had it less than 1 year and I have maintained it by the book. I have about $7500 in it, the mulching kit, and 3 sets of extra blades. I am sure the 2002 is even more expensive. My properties are all small residentials so I am thinking of replacing with a walk behind. How much should I ask for it? Give me your opions!

    If it was mine, I would probably start about $6200. I paid $6800 for mine new plus tax. Probably you should be willing to come down a little. Not much.
  3. This is like buying a truck that has been lifted and after market wheels and tires.

    It is only worth what some one else will pay for it.

    100 hours

    All most out of warrenty


    I'll trade you a Turf Tracer 52" 23hp Kohler even up for it.

    If you want I'll even swap the engines out.

    65Hoss you will have his expectations up too high at $6200.

    The basic rule for anything used is 1/2 original purchase price. Then you work up or down depending on how nice or new it is. If you take a brand new $35,000 truck off the lot and sell it the next day, its only worth high 20's! You may be lucky to see $5,000 for that mower KB. This is why we have to make "educated" decisions in life. If I were you I'd keep it. It doesn't cost anything to keep it. Unless you financed it? Put it on Ebay, things seem to go for more $ than they are worth. I've been pretty lucky with selling on Ebay. Always make out like a bandit!!

    Good Luck

    I am think of starting a small business this spring and was considering a Lazer to do small - large residential jobs. Curious...why are you swithing from your Lazer to a walkbehind?

    In my area a 52 is worth a lot less than a 60,no one wants a 52 on commercials,and it to big for residentials,i d say ask about 5200,and probably sell it for4500 here,if it were a 60,it would be worth at least 700 more.
