    Hello there,

    I'm a hardscape company owner and don't mow any grass except my own, which in turn means I know Jack & Sh*t about commercial mowers besides the fact that I hear Scag is a great mower. If the best option is to buy new I can do that, not a problem.
    I happened to stumble across this one for sale on craigslist. and thought, $2700 sounds better than $8000....
    It's got 1700hrs and I'm not really sure what the lifespan on these is.... and what to look for when looking at this.
    It's been used commercially, and being a business owner I know things on the job get beat up, so wanted to get the grass pros feedback.

    Looking forward to your insight!

    1700 hours is a sizable amount. It's best to go with something under 1000 hours, but if you look at it and have a mechanic or someone make sure the engine is good, then it might be worth it. Keep us updated!

    $2700 sounds like a great deal even with 1700 hours. If everything works fine I would buy it tonight if it was still there.

    That's what I ended up doing. Today I picked up a 2014 Tiger Cat 52" Kawi new from JD in Hilliard.
