    not really. They are that much brand new with full warranty and zero hours at many dealers. If you got it for $2000 it would be a good deal.

    No you didn't but I still don't think it's worth $2400. just my opinion. check out that link above i posted.

    I gave $2000 for mine (used at a dealer) it was bought new by a LCO as a back up mower so used little. It was 3 years old at the time and bigger deck, bigger engine, floating deck and hydro drive. No warranty but fine with me... not saying you can get a deal like that, but I wouldn't pay $2400 for a used 2 year old mower that I could get new for about that much.

    Most warranties do not transfer from the origional owner. I would check that out.

    eXmark will transfer warrenties under most conditions. Do a search on the eXmark forum, think its been posted there a few times.
