    Looking at picking up a 2009 Exmark with a 23 Kawasaki. 350 hours. Strictly homeowner use. Garage kept. Immaculate shape. What would you guys say is a fair price?

    Kind of guessing here, but I bet that machine cost about 8-9k in 09. I would say a fair price is somewhere around 6k, maybe a little less.

    4-6k depending on hydro quality. If they are super tight which they probably are I would say 6

    Thanks for the responses. I was thinking the same. 5-6 range. He's asking 4500 so I figured I'd take a look.

    2009 is 5 years old!!!!!! $2800 firm in mint condition!! Old motor old deck old hydros old everything. Mowers take a beating being used and not being used remember. Don't value value something on it's curb appeal

    I totally agree. I've been looking for a used ZTR for a year now, just checking market prices, getting ready to buy in the spring. I can't believe what some people are selling pieces of sh!t for. I wouldn't pay over 3000 for this mower.

    I see Exmarks from 07-10 on CraigsList with ripped seats and 1300 hours for like 5-6000 all the time. Why would you pay over 65% of sticker price for something that has already been used for 80% of it's best hours. 3000 hour rating doesn't mean anything, somewhere after 1500, you start needing a lot more expensive repairs.

    This machine has been babied. Strictly residential. 350 hours. Thanks for the input though guys. The fact that it is 4 years old means zero.
