    Purchased about 4 years ago (Howard Brothers Duluth). Last tune-up over a year ago. used for just my house & a parents past year on less than 1/4 acre yards. Freshly sharpened blades, no bagger. Has a Kawasaki 12.5 motor, has ECS on the mower, & is tagged by factory# FB46OV. Mower was used for 15 customers in 2 1/2 season of a short lived side company of mine & has been used very little in last year.


    Thats the description he gave me, everythign is working like it should. price is $800 and is about a hour and a half drive. I live in a smaller city cant find too much used equipment. Any advice?

    I'd certainly grab it for that much. I have the same w/o the ecs, and about 250 hours, and I would want closer to what dawgfan says if I were to sell it. The only thing visibly wrong is the discharge chute is bent, no biggie. Even if it needed spindle bearings, they are no big deal to change out. Those and an idler pulley on the trans drive belt are the only repairs I've had to make.

    If you decide you don't want the mower, try to sell the guy a lawn renovation, then your trip won't be wasted, haha. Looks like a case of the cobblers kids have no shoes.

    Yes it is. I sold a 36 toro (same mower just tbar) for 1200 and it had more hours on it.

    Wish I would have found something like this before I bought the Quick 36
