A couple weeks ago I posted about a 52", 17HP Ferris DD, with sulky, and only 200 hours on it, I was going to buy, but I wanted to make sure the $3000 price tag was fair. You guys convinced me that it sounded fair, so I went back to the bargaining table with the seller . He now has in mind that he is going to buy a ZTR, and he needs to pay off his walker first. He owes $2300 on it, so now we've settled on me paying the $2300, and I'll pay off the rest ($700.00) with firewood at $50/ face cord. All I have to do is drag the wood out of my woods, and he's going to cut it, split it and haul it home!! I'm going to be standing at the bank in the morning when they open! I wish I could get the money sooner! Thanks to everyone that posted and helped me out on this one!!!
