    I found this in the local classifieds. '04 TT with under 50 hours. He has an asking price listed. But I was curious to see what you all thought it was worth.

    I have done a search on ebay completed listings and found some pricing but most have at least 300hrs plus in the adds.

    Sorry I need to add some info

    48" Hydro with 17hp Kawi

    What size? Hydro? Belt? And only 50 hours? Was it a residential?

    The drive question has already been answered. It is a hydro if it is a Turf Tracer.

    i paid 6k for my 08' 48" 19hp electric start. i'd say somewhere between 2500-3000 would be alright with only 50 hours on it. does it have an hour meter or is he guessing? if no meter, check for wear items, tires, belts, check the oil, tranny fluid. goodluck.

    It's a great deal for sure, if it is legit. Then again I haven't put but about 9.4 or so on mine including the learning curve and I've done a good number of cuts with it.

    I spoke with him today and he stated he bought it off of a gentleman who was a dealer and went out of business. He was told it was a demo with around 20 hours. He put on a hour meter when he bought it and the hour meter now shows 20 hours. He is asking $4000 obo.

    I called on 2 other mowers. An '05 TTHP with 19hp and around 200 hours, owner guess. He wants $2850, also private owner. The other being an '07 viking, 36" with catcher and mulch kit used on own yard for $3500.

    I currently run a 38" John Deere mower. So any of these would be an improvement, but trying to decide which is the best deal is bothering me a bit.

    thanks for the advice. I'm waiting for some pictures to be emailed and then if I am still interested I'm going to go take a look in person.
