    Guy is asking $800. It is an exmark 36" belt driven. Model # V3612 5k05, I was curious how old this is? I tried googling the model # but can't find anything on it. Any advice? He is also selling a 54" lesco hydro for $1200 model # 703690 which in your opinions would be the better deal? Or maybe make a package deal offer of like $1500 for both?

    I see, I was entering the model # incorrectly. The guy told me it was 4 years old lol.

    No, you're fine it was close enough for paperwork but lessons learned, and not that it made much of
    a difference in this case but you always have to get the serial number, too.

    That having been said, if the guy's telling you it's 4 years old I would likely just stay away from that,
    not saying the guy's a liar but if he can't figure out the actual age of the product he is selling
    then there's no telling what else he doesn't know and if you want a good machine then you should
    probably look into buying it from someone who can answer your questions straight.
    Well, at least the simple ones for sure.


    Peace out
