    Hello all, I am wondering your thoughts on a 2010 toro "commercial" unit with a 48 in deck. 0 hours at dealership, a deal from toro hq. asking $8999. Also the dealer is willing to give me a great price on my trade in, a 2000 z147 with 501 hrs and a 44" deck.

    What do you think my trade in is worth, and is this unit a good buy?

    I appreciate your comments.

    Seems a little high for a 48" 2010 model

    It is a "commercial " unit. Equivalent to a 6000 series today.

    It must be a g3 model then for 2010. I bought 2 new g3 60" 27 hp toro mowers in 2011 for 7995.00 each with tax. 8999. seems quite high especially for a 2010 48". Try to get it around 6000-6500 otherwise you can shop around and find a similar mower new in the 6-7000 range fairly easily. Check out all the incentives offered like toro will give you 18% off if you can show proof that you mow a church. I think I provided a letter from a church and a 1099. Either should work. John Deere does the same if you have any sort of government contract local, state or federal. Gravely does 20% if you buy 2 or more units totaling more than like 12500 or close to that don't remember for sure. Not all these incentives are advertised well but a good dealer should be able to inform you.

    I agree with above posters Sounds a bit high. I would think a reasonable price for a 2010 model G3 with a 48 deck would be around 6000-6500 ish

    I know my local Toro dealer has an open offer to me for when I need a new 60 to get a 27 kohler EFI for 8 grand. That's on a toro 5000 If I remember right

    Wow, thanks guys! I really thought that this was something I shouldn't pass up, but perhaps I will.

    Fantastic info on the incentives! Thank you very much! I will speak with them and find out more info if I can.
