    I've been very pleased with my '05 or '06(?, I forget what year I got it) 2700-60D. Absolutely no issues with the machine whatsoever. I had had no experience with Generac engines before, but all I can say is "Wow!" Of the brands I've owned over the years, to include Briggs, Kohler, Kawasaki, & Onan, I'd definitely rate it in the top two. The available torque is impressive and it has no problem powering the 60" deck thru dense, wet grass at near max ground speed if necessary. Can't imagine it ever bogging down on a 50" deck.

    Sounds like a fair deal to me...Offer $3000.00 and see where he stands.
