    I'm upgrading to a 48" Hydro and am selling my 48" Exmark Metro.

    The Metro is a 2007 model with 103 hours on it. It is in excellent condition, looks brand new, run perfectly, belts in good condition, just changed the oil and filters.

    I don't have any pics yet, but this should give a good idea of the unit. I also called a dealer and was told a new 48" Metro goes for $3249 + tax.

    I'm thinking a fair selling price would be somewhere between $2000-$2500. What do you guys think?

    A fair selling price would be 1650, half of new.

    But you can probably get 2000 for yours, except I wouldn't call it a fair price,
    I wouldn't hesitate, however, to call it a good price.

    Now 2500, I think that's on the steep side, low hours or not you'll fight the folks
    who want to argue about it having been used commercially, no matter how good it looks.
    Unless it was never used commercially, in which case I think you should mention that.

    Just my .002

    1500.00 is what I'd pay
