ha ha ha. I tried to buy the same mower. It's listed all over the country for $2600. It's a scam artist trying to rip you off. I had purchased a 2006 Lazer Z HP with 10 hours on it earlier this year for $3600, and thought I had robbed the guy I bought it from. Was reading this thread and was feeling a bit bummed, until I realized that there is no way you are getting that mower for that price.
