I have a used Ariens Zoom 1740 ZTR with mulch kit. Mower was purchased 2 years ago and only used on a 1/2 acre lot. While the hours shown is 134 hours, the actual hours is only approximately 60 hours. (One of my kids turned the ignition key and drained the battery, which added the extra hours). I averaged no more than 25 hours/year. Cost was over $3600 new. Mower will also come with a 40" spike aerator(new in box, purchased from Mendards and never opened) as well as a 40" dethatcher. Striping kit is included, so if you have a nice established lawn, this will stripe with the best of them. I compared to Hustler and picked the Ariens for a better overall value. $2700 OBO.
