    Mower has 600 hours on it. The owner says he does not let his employees drive it , so I guess it's not been abused. He's selling to move up to Diesel. Also will I be able to use the Flex deck on this used mower.

    600 hours on a machine that has been taken care of is not very many. We put that many hours on our old Chopper this season and I have more hours than that on my 2001 diesel. I would think that was a good deal if it hasn't been all beat up.

    The Flex Deck will fit the previous 60" decks with a little modification. I can't remember exactly when they put the antiscalp wheel on the left side, but if has none there, it should bolt right up after welding a small piece on to put a bolt in. If it has one, you have to take the left part of the bracket off and you can get a bolt on bracket if you take the Flex Deck off for any reason and want an antiscalp wheel on the left side.

    I hope this helps. If you have any more questions on this, email me and I might be able to answer more questions.
  3. That would be a good sized chuck of doe that you could put on brand new one ,althougt with just 600 hrs it sounds if its in good condition like a fair deal
  4. Almost half the price for a 2 year old good condition machine with low hours.

    HELL YES!!!!!!!!

    If not tell him to post it in the equipment for sale forum. It will be gone in less than a day!!!!
