    This is a 2001 52" Toro that was used commercially for 390 hours. 23 or 25 HP Kohler, I am unsure. I think it said 700 and some CC's. It looks pretty beat up and I don't know for sure how well it was maintained. The guy said it had the oil changed ecvery 100 hours and new filters and the hydro fluid changed every year. The left side of the deck is curled where it was hit on something and the right side is missing the scalp wheel. I did not get a chance to cut with it, but it fired right up no problem. What do you think?

    Since you asked.....I would rather buy a home depot cub cadet with the stamped deck than that thing. IT would save you $500 bucks too. I have a resi 50 inch home depot special....It now has 45 hours on it and still and champ cutting great.....just my 2 cents.

    that machine needs a scalp wheel and a power washer and other than that it still looks like normal wear on it. i owend one and it cuts like a champ. for 3500 bucks seems like a good deal. def try to cut with it if you can b4 you buy it. btw those scalp wheels take a beating and they arent that strong so if they are brokien i wouldnt look at that as being beat on.

    3500 max, 3000 IMO more realistic. My dealer this spring gave me 3750 for a Ferris 1000Z with only 220 hours on it, 23 hp kawi, 61" deck. No damage on it whatsover and I am a maintenance freak when it comes to looking after our equipment.
