    Hi all. Brand new to this Biz. Have a chance to buy a ZD18 for 2000 dollars but two brackets need to be welded on the deck. Any thoughts or opinions?

    HOW MANY HOURS ON IT.

    sounds like a good price

    depends on the shape of the mower. they do have some trany related problems.

    i was told that the motor should last a good 4000 hours. it's the rest of the machine that you need to see what kind of shape it is in.

    if you have a picture. people on here will be able to give you a better estimate of what it's worth.

    Should I "run from it" because of the tranny weakness or is this a bad model or too many hours or ??? Thanks for any input.

    The early models had hydro reservoir problems, the hydrostats were deprived of oil when cutting on embankments, this caused big problems.
