Heck of a deal for this.

    Once in awhile I'll read that someone here on LawnSite got a new or used equipment for a great price. Well, yesterday I brought back home a Gravely 34Z, for $2500.00 . The mower is only 5 months old, in perfect condition, has 28.9 hours on it. I can not believe the deal I got. I'm still pinching myself. I did pretty good on this one! I got a Accelerator grass catcher on is way, plus the mulch kit. What you all think about this?

    The previuos owner is getting out of commercial mowing, does not have the time due to running another business full time. He paid for the mower in cash and just wanted to get rid of it quickly. I met him half way to pick it up in Nebraska.

    He is from South Dakota and we decided to meet half-way for me to pick up the mower.

    I'd make sure it has clear "title" so to speak, in other words that it is not financed or has a lien on it with money oweing on it, or not stolen esp with it coming from another state.

    If you don't mind;

    How did you find out about this mower? Who did you buy it from? Does the guy have anything else he's trying to get rid of?

    I'm in ND and would like to know more...

    thanks,
    tj
