    Local dealer has a 2005 Deere 757, 60" with about 580 hours on it. Prior owner let some grass build up in the cooling fins and ruined a head. Dealer has replaced the head and says the rest is good to go.

    I looked it over and it looks to be in pretty good shape.

    Dealer is asking $4800.00 after his techs give it a good once over.

    This would be a first zt for me to get started with.

    That sounds like a fair price, I'd ask him to check the hydro pump and system real good. A warranty would be nice, too!

    Good advice, I think I'll counter back with an offer of $4500.00 if he can give me a "good health" report on the Hydro system and a 90 day warranty on the powertrain.
