A landscape company in my area is cleaning shop. They have this 11 year old Viking that they just want out of there. I called yesterday and was told that it has a Kawasaki motor and runs and cuts fine. They have full time mechanic so maintenance has probably been consistent. I will probably go look at it today. My questions are for Exmark owners. Is a walk behind mower this old worth the hassle? What if anything needs special attention on this model? How well do these perform? (gear drive) I am trying to be realistic. I have big start up costs and if I can get through the year with something like this and then maybe get something else next year, great. But I don't want to waste my money either.
