    I have a close friend of mine whose husband died suddenly this past fall. He had purchased this mower at the end of this summer and it has 21 hrs on it.

    The lady wants to sell the mower but I just do not have the need for it right now so I am trying to help her out now. What exactly is a mower of this caliber worth? I am not used to choppers. Garage kept and only 21 hours.

    You can buy a new one for around $8200 for a 50" if that helps any.

    You didn't say if it was a Classic, Silver Eagle or what. I would say that mower is worth from 6500 to whatever more you can get. A Classic is their industrial mower. They call the Silver Eagle a commercial mower. A Silver Eagle and Golden Eagle are a step below a classic. The Xcaliber is their best mower.
    I would say look on Ebay and Craigslist and see what a similar mower is going for. You probably have to sell this mower for an amount that would keep a person from going ahead and buying a new one. I think the warranty is based on time and or hours. I'm not sure if it is transferable. That will have to be considered also. I'm in the south so mowers here might sell for a little less than up north and in a bigger city. Go to the Dixie Chopper site. You can info on dealers in your area. Call them and get a price for your kind of mower.:usflag:
