    I'd give $3k (current bid) for that unit in a heart beat.

    that is, of course, assuming all is as described.

    Notice it is a stamped deck, not the newer fabricated one. May not matter though as I know nothing about that deck. Just thought I'd point that out.

    The deck looks to be too shallow and kind of light weight. Stamped decks can be damaged very easily and they will not last as long as fabricated decks. If you are willing to spend 3K for a back-up mower it might be OK, but I don't think the mower would last long if it received a lot of commercial use. JMO.

    That is the Viper model which is alittle cheaper and less "durable"
    than the Z-Two. As mentioned, the deck is cheaply constructed.. But, for $3,000 its a good price regardless of the construction. I don't think that model is a 2002, probably a 2000 or 2001..

    I agree, it looks to be older then a 02, reason, they had fab decks on all there model by then, I know you can still get a cub tank (homeowner) version 48" w/stamped deck. Also what caught my eye was how much paint was worn off the foot platform, my mowers have 3 times them hours and have less paint worn off, but maybe on the tanks they put thicker paint.LOL
