    I found someone selling a 2000 32" deck with 13hp kohler Toro recycler walk behind. It is gear driven and comes with a sulky. He is asking $1,000.00 OBO and the ad has been running for a long time.
    If its worth anything at all, What would you offer?

    How many hours does it have?

    Seems kinda high for a 32" belt from 2000. by the time you can use it it will be 9 years old

    well hours are key, as well as demoing,

    700 is the highest I would reluctantly go, assuming everything is great and low hours

    It's too much. That machine won't have an hour meter on it, but it doesn't matter. You are talking about a machine that is 8 years old, and is a little itty bitty mower to begin with. Remember...you are looking at 10 inches over a push mower.

    i have a 52'' scag walker with a 14hp kohler on it im selling for $1500. so for 500 bucks more you get a real mower. im just saying there are much better deals to be had than that.
