    Today i found a 60" dixie chopper ztr for 2500 and a 7X14 trailer for 750, the mower has 1200 hours on it and looks kind of banged up but just for starting might not be bad, the trailer floor is pretty banged up but its the wooden floor so all i would have to do is replace the floorboards. If i can get all this out of him for 3K would that be a good deal?

    ide buy it even for the price he's asking, but, it sure don't hurt to save as much as possible.

    That mower looks like its in horrible shape. For me that would be a great big HELL NO on the mower. Our lazer has 2,400 hours on it and looks 10X better than that.

    Careful with that chopper those spindles must be shot, trailer looks like it needs some work also. call him and test out the chopper first.

    I'd probably pass on the Dixie, but with some wood, a repaint, and a set of tires that trailer might be a good deal.

    All I can say is that equipment's been run hard and put back in the barn sweaty...I'd pass IMO.
