    I recently found this mower for sell...since I am not familiar with it I thought I'd ask if it was a good deal or not?

    2003 Exmark Metro (48in), less than 50 hours, never used commerically...
    $1600.00, probably can get it $100.00 cheaper.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I dont think that is a good deal.....if i were you i would go for a nice walkbehind....a 100.00 off of a 3 year old peice of equipment is not a good deal at all even if it does have 50 hours on it....if it was brand new never ran i would still want more than 100 off

    Not a bad deal at all. The price new is right around 3000. Does it have the mulch kit?

    sounds really good, but if you can, demo to see if you like it.

    Mike, I recently went to our Exmark Dealer here in Raleigh and he wouldn't come off of list. Where in Greensboro can you go and get one at that price? Thanks.

    I'd like to see the pricing you are getting on new equipment seeing as my 2000 Exmark Metro HP 48" was $3361.28 out the door new

    That is a good price on that mower. Real good price. So what if the mower is 2 yrs old. Its only got 50 or so hours on it and is designed to run for 2000-3000 hours. It is practically new.
