    Wonder if anyone could offer their opinion on whether or not this is a good deal.

    $1700
    Used Scag 36"
    SW36-13KA
    Serial # 07540605

    My concern is the dealer is telling me it is either a 2004 or 2005 and I can not match the serial number with one of the manuals on the Scag website.

    Appreciate any feedback!

    Hydro? No hour meter ha? Seems ok if it's hydro.

    Not hydro, belt and no hour meter. It does include a catcher as well. The mower looks to be in good condition - no rust, new tires, springs, blades, etc...

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Two years ago I bought a 2006 36" Bobcat belt drive mint/low hour so he said for $800 from a dealer in Fall. Used it for a season and sold it for $1200 in Spring. I know you can find a better value in Fall. Now, ?? Last Fall I found a 2010 36" Toro Grandstand w/ 60hrs for $3000. Sold it this Spring for $3800. Should have gotton more for that one. Just my experience. Belt drives can be a pain on small properties. I sold the above two and just use my 52" Scag on the small properties too. Keep in mind, the market for 36" is small for re-sale. I found that out with the Toro...I have a neighbor trying to unload a 34" or 36" Toro belt drive 2002 for $500. So, I think $1700 is high. I think you can buy a new belt drive Exmark for low $3s. Look at Craigslist and Ebay.
