    My brother is looking into buying a used Lesco mower. I don't know to much about the deal. All he could tell me is that it's a 48", Kawasaki motor that has been used for 1 year. He's including the dolly, bag, and extra blades for $1800.

    is it a hydro, or belt? Reguadless, whichever one it may be, both good mowers.

    I don't know but I'm guessing it's a belt based his asking price. Is that a good price?

    The lesco green fixed deck is a good mower and if it is a Hydro and you put 20X10 wheels on it it can mow almost as much as a good ZTR. I would not pay 1800$ for a belt drive and the lesco WB can be had for nothing practically.

    The rule of thumb on a lesco mower that I follow for here in FL is if it is almost like new I pay 50 cents on the $ that is what makes the mowers such a great bargain.

    The last one I bought last year had 65 Hours on it and had a 17HP Kawie and I got it with the Lesco velkie and it was like new for 1900$ which is 50 cent's on the $

    Lesco products are trully mediocre but a great value used for the $. If the mower is not close to new and a hydro I would say NO!

    and just remember when buying used MTD,cub or lesco

    Do a search because there are threads going on this now and many many before. YES, Lesco's and com Cubs are great mowers.

    There simple and very mediocre, sometimes I think these people have just moved up from a Murray rider.

    Lesco's are great mowers and the kawasaki is a good commercial engine
