    Where are you, I'm looking for a 36 mower. The price here is what you payed new, right? What are you selling for. PM it to me.

    I am in Ball Ground, GA

    I paid $4,500.00, Plus $270 Tax, Plus $160.00 for the mulch kit, Brings it to: $4,930.00.

    I will take no less than $4,400.00.

    You will not find one in better shape, unless it is brand new.

    You seem like a nice guy and I mean no disrespect but I don't think you will ever sell that mower for $4400. I see your point and how you got to the $4930 figure but you have to view this from the other guys point-of-view.

    You want a guy to buy a used machine that will have less warranty and probably less dealer support (Dealer says, "Hey, you didn't buy the mower from me!") and he only saves $!00 off and gets a free mulch kit. Not enough encentive to buy from you. And the sales tax just doesn't fit into the equation. Sorry but I can't sell my new truck tomorrow for $500 more than I paid for it just because I paid that in sales tax.

    I think you willl have to take less - and no, I'm not even in the market for a mower - it's just my humble opinion.

    No doubt. I paid $4200.00 for my 2004 36" TTHP, $115.00 for mulch kit. You'll get 3500 for it.

    Thats about the going rate of a used 36" TTHP with that many hours on it. They sell for $4400 here new and I think that is high. I paid $3700 for mine with around 20 hours on it.

    New mowers depreciate fast. I would think most folks would want at least $1,000 off new to take the risk on a used model. There are tons of things that can be wrong with a mower and not show up upon inspection. I have a one year old mower I paid $2600 and know I got a good deal on it, with about 50 hours on it, that I don't expect to even see $1500 for when I sell it soon.
