    definatly you can find the deals on some good used stuff out there. You just have to look for them. Usually the best machines look like hell. Hydros will last nearly forever if people have not messed with them. I got a 36" ZTR this summer for $165.00 because the guy couldn't get it started. After I pulled the rats nest out of the air cleaner it fired right up. used it for a week and sold it for $600. I also got a 60" exmark turf tracer for $600 because the guy thought one of the hydro pumps was bad. All it was was a fitting that was leaking air and it burned up a charge pump. Cost me less than $30 to fix. Just look around. If you find a machine that has a verticle shaft engine you can replace those for next to nothing. So keep your eye out for something with a blown motor as well.

    Sure, they have them all day long at Home Depot & Lowes or CL for under $2000!

    Now, you didn't ask if they were commercial or residential either!
