I got him down to 5,500.00 is this a good deal and should I jump on it, he said the bagging system alone was 1700.00. You guys please let me know if I should buy it or not.

    Sounds like a decent buy but I have no idea what a new one costs. My question to you is.. Do you really need it? Can you afford to drop $5500 and make it pay off anytime soon? Maybe you can find a nice used walkbehind for $1000 instead?
