    How much is this 36" mower worth, all the info I have on it is: It's about 6 years old and it runs good and it has a flat tire, is it worth $500? I have a couple of pics, I hope you can tell me a few things about this toro from the pics, thanks

    $500 dollars for a mower like that in good working order sounds like a very good price. If you can check the mower out, check out the front casters and see how much play they have in them. You could do the same for the spindles.

    A few years back I spent $300 for a 11 year old 36" mower that needed a new engine. So I think $500 sound good for one that runs well.

    New that model would cost over $3000 today so depending on condition, hours and so on I think this would be a very good deal. Just make sure to check things out on it, see if he will air the tire up and let you run it around the yard a little while to make sure everything is working ok.

    Another thing is that is cant be 6 years old because ECS controls weren't around 6 years ago.

    i say, if it runs good, buy it right now. 500 hundred would be a steal.
