    Hi Guys,

    Where do most of you look for used ZTR's?

    I am looking on craigslist and ebay with no luck yet.

    The local Ferris/Deere dealer says they wholesale most they get in.

    Or am I a month too early/Late for the end of season disposal in Ohio.

    Thanks,

    Nathan

    Look on Craigslist, there are lots of mowers in your area that I would love to get, but are to far for me. Another source would be to download Craigspal, and then you end up getting a lot higher amount of results.

    Craigs list and Ebay are the only places i look. The dealers around here want pure gold for the used turds they're selling!!:angry:

    Try www.govdeals.com
    Sometimes you'll see some really great deals. It's sort of like ebay.
    I have seen some municipalities getting rid of their entire fleets. Keep in mind there is a lot of junk too. Tony

    I should also add that I would like them to be in the Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton, or Indianapolis areas as I don't want to drive more than 75-100 miles.

    Thanks,

    Nathan
