    A couple years back, I bought a used lazer.....$4900. It had a few more hours than yours.

    I used it for 3 years, and got rid of it....(for newer stuff) for $4500. They hold their value, and still ran great when I got rid of it. Where else can you use commercial equipment like that at a price of $133 per year?

    Sounds good if its taken care of

    For an HP, this sounds a little high..... Find out what the original price was on it, and as I was told by our Exmark dealer (very reputable), that depending on what kind of shape it's in, you can usually figure between 5 and 10 dollars per hour on it for depreciation.

    Depends on the price it sold for new.

    Actually with the vac and mulch kit that is a pretty fair price. That mower was around $6800 new, $150 for the mulch kit and about $1300 for the vac. That low hours its a fair price.
