    I have that same machine (with sulky) in the same exact condition sitting in my shed collecting dust.

    To me it's worthless ;)

    $900?

    Why do you still have it then? If it's a POS, why not sell it? BTW, I agree...3 acres per hour is exaggerating.

    less than $900..I'd snatch it if I had the money to spare, even if it was only a back-up or used to start off another crew...I priced a Toro a few years ago with the same set-up, and it was $4000.00.

    Let me clarify.. I was being a little obnoxious. It's not that bad of a machine. I cut rather large lawns and grew tired of it quickly.. it did not cut high enough for me and I went through many, many deck belts.

    If you can pick one up for $1000 or less.. do it.
