    I have a 1998 Grasshopper 721 D 61" deck with 15 cubic ft collection system for sale. All maintenance has been kept up. I will also include numerous blades with purchase.

    This machine has not been used at all this season and only has 1500 hours. I am the original owner. I have down sized my business and I am now mowing with a Exmark Lazer 27 HP Diesel 72" cut with striping kit.

    The asking price for the mower is $ 5350.00. If anyone is interested please contact me via email: Groundscare@aol.com or cell 302-983-3180. I will email pictures to interested parties.

    I also have a leaf vacum for sale $ 150.00 or best offer. This package together would be awesome for leaf season.

    Thank you in advance,

    I'm not trying to burst your bubble, but that's a lot of money for a mower with 1500 hours on the clock. Down here in Florida that mower might fetch $3000-$3500 if it is in perfect condition.

    There's a mid mount Grasshopper on Ebay right now that has 2277 hours and it hasnt even gotten to $1100 yet. $5350 for a '98 with that many hours is way steep.

    I apologize for the original high price but that is what my local dealer told me it would be worth.

    I am a Grasshopper dealer, so I thought I might comment here on this pricing. He may be able to get that in his area. In some areas of the country, used machines bring more money. That machine is a diesel, so that is a plus. It is just getting broken in at 1000hrs. However, a big minus, is that it has the Gemini hydrostatic system. Most commercial cutters now, want the 721D2, that has the better hydrostatic motor and pump system.
    IN THIS AREA, he would probably get only about $3500.00 for this machine. But, remember, the real value of the machine is what someone will actually pay for it. THese are expensive to buy new, and are a very nice machine, especially with the collection system. So for the right person, his price could be a real deal.
