    I sell equipment, that Turf Tiger is selling way too cheap. Never made sense to me when guys said, "I'm selling cheap because...". ????? You need to sell anything for the price it can get on the open market, regardless of what you want to buy next. Makes sense, doesn't it? Sure. That mower should be selling for no less than $4500 anywhere in America. I could get that without even putting out effort.

    I could sell it for $4500 in the spring no problem but i need the cash no so i can get last years model Walker MTGHS .... $3200 makes for a decent down payment

    still, why cheat yourself of any money, start higher and then you can negotiate. you have no room now and could have gotten more in the same effort.

    Simple: I dont like to beat around the bush, the mower has made me enough money where I dont look at it as a loss "getting rid of it so cheap"... also I expect to sell it to the first person who looks at it. Time is money and if I list it at $4300 id have to show it to 5 people who all want to haggle me about the price, thats a waste of my time....

    I would never undersell a name brand mower unless I didn't have the money to put food on the table. Delay the purchase or finance it.

    I do the same thing. Its so much easier when your priced at the bottom of the mrkt. Quick sale is worth $$ over drawn out PITA sale
