    Well ive been looking for a zero turn, The lawn tractor just isnt doing it anymore, LOL. So Im not finding much im not wanting to spend a lot right now and dont want to finance one.

    I have found this White outdoor 50" with 500 hours on it, It has a 22hp Tecumseh engine. everything works great, He will take $1100 for it. Does this look like something I should get?

    the REAL question is....how pissed of do you wanna be when you start using this machine...cause you is gonna be all sorts of pissed off BECAUSE #1- It's a MTD product #2 It has a engine that has a lackluster reputation thats out of business and parts availability is getting worse every year. As a dealer, mechanic, and as a friend....DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:hammerhead:

    Ok I agree with you on the white, but what do you think about the cub cadet? Depending on hours?

    well Cub Cadet is also MTD made. But that looks like its a pre-MTD machine. But I'm not sure. I would hate to steer you away from it. It might be worth the $750. It's got a Kawi so thats a plus.

    Ok, well I will wait to hear back from him about it. Like I said this is just to get me by a while and to get away from the lawn tractor I've been using. I'm getting more business and need something more. Just can spend 4 to 5k right now on a nice ztr. But I figured since it does have a kawi it may be worth it. How long do the kawis typically last? What would be to many hours. It is the 17 hp fh 500v I believe.
