    Today I was driving through town and noticed a nice front deck grasshopper for sale. Its a 2001 model, 618, 18 hp kolher, 54" cut with 126 hrs. Its pretty slick so I went to the door and talked to the guy and he wanted 6000. Is this guy tryin to shaft someone or what, thats pretty steep for a 01' Right???

    if it does not come with a bagger, that is not much less than price of a new 618

    A 600 series is the home owner version. It won't last very long. If you plan to us it commerically a 700 series is a must. If you get one, get the G2 trannies in it.

    I would say that it is worth $4500.00, tops. The 600 series is really homeowner quality. It is a nice little mower, but will not stand up to constant hard commercial; use. It also has a pretty slow ground speed.
