    See them for less than that. Sold the last 3 36"s for less.
    (Belt drive obviously)

    Sure can.I just bought a 5 yr old Gravely Pro 36 today for $ 400.00. It just depends on where you look and how long you want to look and how far you are willing to go to pick it up.I have to travel 200 mi one way, but it's worth it.Here in town, the same mower would have went for 800-1100.00.It's a good time of the year to look for equip auctions and consignment sales.Good luck!

    Personally anyone selling a good 36" mower for that kind of price is nuts. If its good it should be worth more than that. An old just ok 36" should be worth that.

    Hey 65hoss, the mower is in really good shape, the guy was just desperate to sell for $$$.He is a now defunct LCO..BTW-I only paid $ 300.00 for the mower, he's charging me $ 100.00 for delivery half way between my shop and his.I agree that this price may seem ridiculous to most, but it's sometimes about being in the right place at the right time for the right price...<a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/4/4_1_6.gif' border=0></a>

    I wasn't meaning you can't get a good deal sometimes. I'm just saying that most that want to find good used machines don't need to limit themselves to really really cheap prices. Most of the "wannabes" do sell out fast and you can find cheap prices on seldom used equipment. Just most don't need to think it will happen like that.

    Oh, do you want me to give you your money back on that gravely? lol

    I got an old 36inch woods mower that i want to get out of my barn but it only starts sometimes and has some problems but it can cut flat yards great and is a good start up mower. If anyone is interested in southeast Michigan let me know.

    Sorry hoss, she's going to a second production crew this spring.I'm getting into more mowing accounts this year, and trying to do less smaller landscape installs(under 3K), so I wanted to get a third mower for a reasonable price rather than new.I was going to buy a 48" Snapper here in town for 2K.I'll now take that other 1600.00 and put towards our second hydroseeding unit in March.The only thing that needs replaced on this mower is the tires.It still has the same original tires, complete with dryrot.All the belts and blades, however, were just changed in October according to the seller.I'll never hit the lottery, but I have a knack for finding a good deal now and then.I hope everyone has a great season this year!<a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/4/4_4_106.gif' border=0></a>
