    I just started in this business and I have been looking at a John Deere GS30 wb. It is one year old with 30 hrs. on it. The previous owner also mounted a Trac -Vac system on it. This mower was not used commercially-previous owner used it at his house and decided he would rather ride than walk. Asking price is $2300.00. Does this sound like a good deal?

    New the John Deere GS30 sells for $2,595. Unless he has the optional hour meter on it, you really do not know how many hours are on it. I think $2,300 is asking to much. For $300 more I'd just go buy a new GS30, one that I know has no hours on it. I just got a used one for $1,500. So far it's done well. If you just had to have it I'd offer him around $1,900. Good Luck Terry
