    i found this mower and it almost looks to good to be true. on the two front caster forks, it looks like some extra welding of different colors went on, or the guy is wanting a red, white, and blue mower....

    anyways. If there is anyone that lives in middle tennessee, i call dibs on this mower.

    he talks like he knows his stuff, but doesnt describe the mower...

    and he left NO contact information, so i have no way of getting in touch with him... so i shall wait.

    Good deal??\

    looks like a great deal to me but if you can contact him make sure you set up a time and place to meet him and if you have to travel a good way then think twice about it

    He has in the add the words FIXED DECK & GEAR DRIVE, does no one find it odd that the pictures are of a Turf Tracer HP?

    It also looks like it's got more than the "low" hours on it as stated in the add. Look at the muffler, it's bent, the deck looks scraped up from normal wear, but the pictures suck so you can't see what REAL flaws are hidden.

    I don't understand, if you haven't got a hold of the guy, you haven't had a chance to look at the machine, what is the problem?

    i agree w/ all the above posts. the muffler is bent to heck, its not described correctly...

    but for $500 IF you get a floating deck hydro...it might be a great deal. (i would worry that the pic is for illustration only, IF in fact there is even a mower for sale)
