    OK, I want to see how far off base I am. Now if a new MTD Lesco Z 2 is 6899 then with my Mr. Haney formula it should bring around 50 cents on the $ of a new one. I figure it to go for around 3600$.

    Could someone please provide the link? Thanks!

    I have a 01 M-60 tank, over 1000 hours, barely used last 3 years, there giving me 3400.00 on trade.
    Figure thats a pretty good deal.

    I can't get it to upload but you can go to www.ebay.com and put in the search bar Lesco 60" Z 2 and it will pop right up.

    And your point to all of this would be what???....
    To say "hey look at me... I like being a pest so much that I don't mind looking like a moron."

    News flash.... most commercial mowers do good to bring 50 cents on the dollar used.
    Especially when auctioned... unless a couple of dummies get to fighting over it.
    Doesn't matter what brand it is.

    Diesels and big-name brands will occasionally fair better... as in Toro or John Deere..

    Case in point, I screwed up and screwed myself out of getting a 23/52" Scag with the collection system and almost no hours off Ebay for about what the bagger cost new. Why? at the time, the Scag fans were busy in a bid war fighting over a big Turf Tiger and the rest of the guys were doing the same over a Toro.

    I am just curious as to weather or not the public is catching on to how high quality the Z 2 is as you say ? I mean according to you it is just as good as my Hustler spec for spec and 2000$ cheaper so it should fair well right? This is the perfect auction for my test.

    B.s I find the products people want do well and the ones that don't follow the Mr. Hainey rule of 50 cents on the $!

    I also agree there as good as any other brand out there, and better then most. Sounds like your mad they sell a mower for 2000.00 less, and you have to spend 2000.00 more to keep your image. Oh well for each their own. I'm satisfied with what I buy also.
