    We are looking at a 2004 Grasshopper 227 with 61 inch deck and 205 hours on it. They are asking $6,000 for it. Does this sound like a good price? The unit looks very clean and in good shape. Thanks!

    That sounds pretty close to me, maybe a touch high, but then again it has fairly low hours which might be worth a few extra bucks.

    Well, it all depends....

    Depends on what the 227 sells for new in your area.
    Depends on what the used market is like in your area.
    Depends on what your ownership plans are for it...
