    Great site you guys have here... Been reading for a while, but now I need some advice.

    I was looking at a 2000 Lesco 54" hyrdo walkbehind with a floating deck, It has a 19Horse Kawi and electric start. The hour meter is not functional but the owner estimates 450-500 hours.

    It sounds/looks like a well maintained machine. The only issue is he says "Make an offer" Those of you who would consider a Lesco... What would you guys pay for this machine?

    Thanks for any input!

    Tell them $500. You'll then get a response likely to tell you what kind of money they're hoping to get. Good luck.

    Lesco 54" W/B hydro's go for about $4000 or a bit more brand new around here. I have a 2000 36" Stander which is a hydro and I have about 775 hours on it. If the machine was a second or back-up machine or if the guy doesn't have that many accounts, then 450-500 hours might be right. The engine is about right for the type of machine, not over or under powered.
    If it is in really nice shape and clean, looks to have been greased, oil changed regularly, etc. then it is probably worth about $2500.
