That's why I'm hoping someone can help me out. I've been looking for a user exmark wb for a couple of months, and have now come across two in the last week. I'd really like to get some opinions from others on what they would do. First, try to put yourself in my shoes. I'm just starting up this summer and am buying used to try to keep my expenses down for startup. I plan to purchase new/bigger equipment by the end of the summer, so this is just a mower for the most part to be a "get started" and then a "be there when I need it" mower. here are the two options. both are floating deck hydros TTHP 36". Under 200 hours, with all the attachments (striper, bagger, mulch kit, stand on, etc.) This would fit on my current trailer (which I will upgrade hopefully middle of the year after I have some income). This would keep start costs lower. It is located 8 hours from my house so if I get there and decided it isn't for me, I have spent a lot of time and energy on nothing. Asking price is $3300. The other is a TT 48" with roughly 500 hours. Includes a stand on and the mulching kit. The reason for selling is he has found another profession and doesn't have the yard to use this on. I would have to purchase a new trailer, but once again, I'll be buying a new trailer at some point in the summer anyways. This is located only about two hours from where I live and about an hour from where I currently work, not a big drive to check it out. Asking price is $3200, but I know I can get that down to close to $2900 after my phone conversation with the seller. That is all the information I know about each of them. Assuming both are in running condition, which would you go with if you were in my shoes? Also, what are some things you would look for when "test driving" them. or things you would ask about?
