Ok here we go. I currently am in the market for a new or used 36" wb and after that I want to get a 61" Rider . So My problem is that my local dealer that I do ALL my buisness with has several good deals. here they are 1-Brand new Bunton w/b gear drive $2,300.00 4-to choose from of used Hydro Bunton 54" w/b $1,000 each 1-Gravely 50" Hydro w/b 1-Bunton 36" w/b gear drive DEMO used under 100 hours. but has been sitting for over 1-2 years. He said he will service it to run like new. $1,200 Now I think what I might want to do is get that demo 36" w/b & one of those used Hydro wb with the larger deck on it . That used bunton demo is in preety good shape and keep in mind those 4 bunton 54" mower and that one Gravely are anywhere from 5-10 years old and he has fixed them up to run like new. They have motors ranging from 16-20 hp the gravely has a 20 hp. These mowers have under 1,500 the gravely being the lesser amount of hours. The used Bunton 36" walk behind has under 100 hours and ofcoarse the new bunton 36" w/b has NO hours on it. What would you guys do ? pass up this good deal and just get the 1 new 36" or get the used 36" and the used 54" for the same price as just ONE new 36 " ? I was planning on getting a 2 wheel Velke with any which one of these deals . And after I get this deal done with I plan on getting a Great Dane 61" rider with the 25 kohler on it. Great peice for around 6,800.00 And also keep in mind all these mower are in decent working condition and have been kept looking great... Except for the deck but you guys know that using the hell out of these peices make scratches on the deck and half the damage on the deck is just years or GREASE and can be worked off.
