    I was just offered a lesco 48" w/b with a 15 kia. for $2000 is that a fair price for that mower, it only has 33 hours. The mower is a belt driven mower. The guy just came down with arthritis this past winter ( it really began to affect him then at least). Are their any types of problems that I should look for if I do decide to buy. Thanks

    JB--the decision on a fair price is up to you. but that machine can be bought for $2200 any day, every day. you decide the value.

    personally, I'd buy a new one to make sure I had the 2 year commercial warranty for the difference of $200.

    I have an older one of those units. you can't kill it as long as you service it and grease the spindles!

    Call Lesco and check new price.That doesn't seem too far from new price.

    Agree. Spend the extra couple of hundred bucks for a new one.
