    I recently purchased a used Exmark 52" with 18hp Kohler, model
    LZ 18KC523, don't know how old it is, only has 220 hrs on it.
    Just curious as to how much it cost when new?

    Hmm.. something funny looking here...

    Shows an original shipment date in 1998, but a ROPS was added in 2005, and then it shows an additional sale date in 2006.

    Are you Rod, or is that who you bought it from? If it's a 98 model, you'd have to find somebody with historical price sheets that far back.

    1st answer: Due to policy in place at Lawnsite, I cannot answer your question.

    2nd answer: To answer this question I would have to relate back to the first answer.

    Didn't know what ROPS was, looked it up on exmark site, previous owner said
    the dealer gave it to him for free, sounded like it was sent by exmark?
    I thought he just bought it about two years, and I ,do know he bought it new.
    Maybe it is older than I thought, thanks for the info.

    From information by the serial number, it would appear to be a 1998 model mower. The ship date (which is usually the point that it would ship from the factory or distributor) is in 1998.

    There was a free ROPS upgrade offered a little while back.. probably in 2005, where Exmark sent out letters to registered owners and dealers.

    Most mowers that size are in the $6000 range give or take. (New price) Just a guess
