    Need Help. I am looking at buying a 2003 JD 777 that a lawn care provider has for sale locally. He has it listed for $3000 OBO. Went and looked at it today and the mower is in good shape. It has 2500hrs on the 27hp LC Kawasaki. He ran it for about 5 minutes cutting his own yard to demo it for me. Stated that is uses about a half quart of oil every 4hrs. You cannot see it smoke. The guy seemed honest about the machine and everything done to it. He has added 7guage steel underneath deck to reinforce places that were getting holes and job was done well. If I buy it, it will be for residental use on 2 acres of mine. What would be a good offer. Thanks.

    Its a gamble, if your up to keeping tabs on the oil and such, might be good, but 3k should get you a smaller mower with under 1000 hours if its only 3 acres. Unless you desire the 72" beast.
