    how much would you pay for a couple year old stander with a catcher with over 2000 hours on the motor and the hydros are a little sloppy. IS it even worth buying? Let me know. thanks LawnInOrder

    You can expect about 2000 to 2500hrs, out of a commercial unit before you can expect major systems to fail. Now I am not saying that the thing will self destruct at 2500hrs., but it is nearing the end of the road and will start to nickle and dime you to the point of costing you money. Always expect the worst out of any used equipment. i would not pay a cent over $1500 for this thing.

    I agree with paying 50% of anything over 2000 hours. I am saying 50% of the hour meter at 2000 hours.......$1000 max.
