I bought this mower in 2006 to mow a few areas I did not want to get my zero turn into. I used it about 2 hours a week during the summer up until last summer when I used it less. I have not used it this summer since I have less to mow and have bought a 21 inch push mower to do the small areas. It does not have an hour meter, but I figured it up and am going to say it has between 200 to 300 hours. It has the 13 hp Briggs and Stratton engine, and greasable spindles. New it cost me $2300 shipped. I'm asking $900. I've improved the usability of the back up thumb lever, raised the handle bars about another inch past the stock high position. This is good for me at 6 foot tall. You can still lower the whole handle bar assembly one notch if you need to. The drive axle drips a little bit of oil. I called Better about this and they said it was likely coming from the hose that connects up to the heated oil expansion reservoir and it was not a big deal. I added some 30 W which is what they recommended to see if the axle itself was full and it was. I've replaced the thumb control cable twice, the last time was not that long ago. If I had of been good about greasing the end of it once a month or so may not have had to do that. Wanted to add that once when I was mowing I could not get the engine to idle down so I shut it down. Took the carburetor off and noticed the throttle plate had come off. I screwed it back on to the throttle shaft with some lock tight on the screws. That should not happen again. I'm trying to remember everything that is different from when I bought it new.... it has some scratches and rust spots where the paint has worn away. I've always run the front tires with no air, they are about the right firmness that way. This is a good piece of equipment. If there is some interest in this mower I can add some pics and give more detail.
