    OK, had to jump on this one. This was a craigslist find. I ws looking into getting a new eXmark 48" metro 15hp kawi this year. I already have one, but I could use a second one. So, I priced one out....almost $3,600 after tax. I bought mine 2 years ago and it cost me $2,850.....? Anyway, I stumbled on this and it was a no brainer. 2003 eXmark Metro 48" 15hp Kawi with ECS and aftermarket 2 wheel sulky for $1000. As you can see in the first pic it needed some attention. Flat tire, needs a powerwash badly, oil and lube.

    and about one hour later.......


    and the whole fleet.....

    In the end, I walked away with the mower for $900. It was residentially used. We popped the tire back on the bead, all belts are like new, no smoke, no noises. I'm selling the stupid sulky and putting a proslide on it.

    Nice deal, I am also watching Craigslist for a deal, I need a 36" for gates. I found a 48" Ferris belt drive for $450, it needed carb cleaned and serviced ($94) and the neutral thumb locks ($17) I installed myself, I have under $600 in it, I am starting on a budget and love to see there are deals if u look hard enough! Nice Exmark man!
