    I was thinking about buying one from a friend for not much$$$$
    What kind of experiences have you all had with them? Any info would be appreciated! Thanks!

    I just bought one from a guy that was in good shape. It was the HTR or something. It's not the basic model but its the step up before you get to the trailer units. It has a 16hp briggs. I just got it mounted on my dump trailer. I havn't used it yet but it seems to be well built and it runs smooth. I paid $1,000 for it.

    We just bought a new 13hp after using a friends last season. Even the 13hp made short work of everything.

    I just bought the new Billy Goat 25hp Robin, and it is sweeeeeeet.I don't like to buy used stuff. You just don't know how hard people are on things.Did they suck up rocks, or change the oil as much as they needed to.Thats why I say buy new, not someones old problem.
