    Scag 36" 04'/44hrs., Sulky, non-hydro, Plus almost new 5x10 trailer fitted for Lawn Care for $2,800. Is this a good price? What does a new Scag 36" Pistol non-hydro go for?

    Call up your local dealer and ask him. Also how do you know the mower only has 44hr.s?

    I think new Scag belt drive with a 36" goes for $3,000-$3,200 depending on your dealer.

    it's a scag, 44 hours is nothing, seems like a good deal, $3800 worth of equipment for $2800, and really, that scag hasn't even been broken in yet.

    Since you know the hours are real its a good buy. PS around here we can pickup a belt Scag for like $2800

    Turns out the guy came down to $2650. So I got a 36" Scag w/ 44Hrs., New Jungle Wheels, new 5x10 Trailer w/ rack and 2' mesh all around, one of those orange water coolers, and an Echo GT-2000 String Trimmer (pretty crappy but whatever) all for $2650.

    So basically I feel pretty good about the deal!

    Thanks for all the input really helped!
