    That price is way too high.

    And I'd look for a different mower.

    Not because I think Snappers are bad, but 21HP isn't enough for a 52" deck Z in my opinion.

    Find out what each of this equipment sells for in new condition. Add it all up and then you will be able to know yourself if its a deal or not. If its used then you need to determine a value. I generally make these decisions based on what I am willing to pay. If its all new I don't think 7 g's is to out of line.

    Your "48in. dethatcher" is going to be a homeowner's rake model. Your "48in. plug aerator" is going to be a homeowner grade model, too...Probably a Brinley.
