    I found an older used one for sale for $150. I'm going to go take a look at it Saturday. I'm sure it's heavy, but probably still a better mower than ones I would get at Home Depot.

    I used to use one throw my form employer. It was a 5.5hp 2 stroke with the bbc. I would pull itself up to 4.5 mph. Sounds like a good deal I would go for it if there was nothing wrong with it.

    I've had a 21" Toro with the 2-cycle Suzuki engine for over 17 years and when I bought it, it was used. You can't kill that engine. Learn to service the rear wheels and chances are, it will out last you. Oh yeah.....Get your track shoes ready. It's FAST!

    If you don't snap it up , I will lol. I have two Suzuki powered Toro's, Placed in service 1997 and 2003 respectively. Drive belt's and replacement of rear tire's have been the extent of repairs.

    He said it has a blade clutch. And I was hoping it was 2-cycle, but the guy said it wasn't.

    He did say it would go almost running speed in 3rd.

    I wish I could find another one.
    I've got a ten year old that sips gas runs fast.
    It's light too. I can toss it around with no fatigue.
    About half the weight of my '06 Kawi Toro Comm. I hate that pig!
