    I bought a used 44" Toro yesterday. It's a 2002 or a 2001 with only 247 hours on it, as it was purchassed from a homeowner who used it to cut his two acres. I got it for $2600, a good deal in my opinion. I included a picture of her hooked up to my custom 4x6 trailer. I'm 15 and can't drive so I got to get around somehow.

    It has a 17hp Kawasaki. I really wanted one with a 19hp but had no luck and this one was only 30 minutes from my house and in very good shape. So far I have had no problems with the engine bogging down. But, then again, I have had it for less than 24 hours and only put 4 hours on it.

    The lawns I did today were fertilized and irrigated and the cut was amazing, just as good as my old walker. I had concerns about the SFS deck on this but so far the discharge has been satisfactory and I have had no problems with clumping.

    Hey you think you could jump on the Parkway south and head down to Capemay and do my yard..LOL..

    Congrats, it good to see a young man working hard and running his own buisness. Good luck on the mower, it looks sharp.

    Dude you will like that mower, I know cuz I got that exact same one only with a 19hp. Mine is a 2005 but pretty much the same. Oh and I paid $7500 new so yeah judging by the low hrs and condition its in I would say you got a heck of a deal.

    yeah prices are crazy around here. But we can get trailers for next to nothing down south. I guess it all depends on where you live.
