    Guys, I was looking at a 48" Bobcat WB, however, someone here in my city advertised a 48" Lesco WB for sale. He is the original owner and said the mower was never used commercially. He is asking $1000. Are these good mowers and does it appear to be a good price. I'm going to look at it tomorrow, he says everything works on it and it has been serviced regularly. I have included pictures. I would appreciate your opinion. Thanks.

    That thing looks brand new. Definitely worth $1000. I would quickly go get it!

    Thanks for your input. I went to check it out today and the pictures don't due it justice. I figured I got a steal.

    Yeah, to me it looks like it's never even cut grass! For a grand that's a heck of a deal. Granted it's a belt drive, but if it's adjusted right it shouldn't beat you up much.

    Hopefully when you went to check it out you brought it home??

    Seriously how many hours on it. Id jump on that too.
    Its probably an awesome find, but at my age.....I would be cautious.
    That machine was never used by the looks of it, I mean its way to clean. Not even a drip mark of grease on it
    Either that or you bought a machine from the most anally retentive person on the face of the earth
    Go for it if its "GOOD"

    I've always run Lesco's and that is a steal for a belt drive that new and clean.
