    Hey guys, I found a 2007 23hp 60" for $2600 with 63 hrs on it.. What do you guys think of a 23hp with a 60" deck?

    Only 63 hours in 3 years? If this mower is legit it is a steal!!! It should be worth $3500-$5000.

    It's a lazer...It was only used for Homeowner use. But do you guys think 23hp is enough?

    I run a bobcat 52 inch estate mower with an 18 horse briggs and it does just fine.

    If you know for sure that it's not stolen ... that deal would mean that you would be stealing it from the seller for that price ... in other words, don't give a second thought, just go get the machine !!

    Thanks guys, I know it's a great deal, but before I go trying to figure out money and whether or not it's stolen I want to know whether or not 23hp is enough for a 60" deck.

    It might be a little short on power in thick, wet grass, etc. You can up the hp on that engine to 25 by making a couple of easy modifications. There have been a couple of threads running currently on this site that describe how to do it. I'd get the mower and never look back.
