    I was quoted for a Super Duty demo 48" deck 23 Kawasaki engine with 40 hours at $5200. Looks like it is in about 9-9.5 out of 10 shape.

    New Fastrack Hustler 48" deck 19 hp kawasaki engine for $4800.00. Does this sound fair or should I put the clamps on them further?

    Thank you for the advice in advance.

    I have the same mower (super duty 48/23), and I paid around $5900 for it new last August. So I think your quote my be a little high.

    Do you use the super duty for commercial use? If so, how is it holding up? Post your thoughts on the machine....good cut, maintenance, etc.

    I use it for my business every day. It 's a well built mower. The cut quality is great. Maintenance is simple enough, just grease 6 zerks every 5 hrs, check the oil and keep the blades sharp. I've been very happy with it.
