    Hey all. I am looking to expand my business and was hoping to find a used 36" walk-behind mower in my area, unfortunately the cheapest one is about $1500. It's a good brand, but way too much for me. Any suggestions, other than Craigslist as to where I could find a cheap, used mower?

    Ebay. Sometimes dealers have good deals on used stuff.

    I found mine on Ebay about 1 1/2 hr away from my house. He mentioned that "it's for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction early", so I shot him a PM and went and looked at it. Bought it the next day, for around 4-500 less than what similar 36" WB in this condition go for. If someone is near you and it's for sale locally too, no reason you can't be the "local" it gets sold to.
