    This goes along with my other post about how i want a wright stander. If i were to get a wright stander i would sell my walkbehind i currently have. Its a 2002 scag 36" with the advantage deck its belt drive and has the bagger and mulchplate. It is around 70-75 hrs. I was just wondering how much you guys think the resale value is?
    Thanks

    I have about 3000 in it.
    mower-2700
    bagger-200
    mulch plate-80
    total-2980
    so grassdaddy that would mean it would be worth 2000.00 resale. If i can get someone who would want to buy it.

    I say with the low hrs and extras you should ask around 2100, sounds low but resale value drops 49% when your mower is used....Markus or Mark.....Marks Mowing Service

    How much have you paid on it so far? In my experience you can always use a back up and a 36" mower should come in handy. Why are you replacing the mower? In short you hardly make out when you sale equipment, atleast I don't. If it makes you more money go for it.

    I wait to sell or trade in till BIG maintenance things start needing attention. For example, couple thousand hrs, needs 4 new tires, still using the original battery, spindles are just starting to get loose, using a little oil, hydros a little tired, etc. THATS when I sell mine, and believe it or not, I can still get $4-$5K for a ZTR in this condition, all because the buyer is usually a homeowner, in which all those problems will not surface for quite a few seasons for them.

    I'd listen to others and KEEP your SCAG. Get a larger WB or that Stander you want and use the 36" for gates and small stuff.

    Used I try to shoot for 1/2, and SO are a lot of other people. They will not even come out and look at it if its $1000 more than other used mowers. They won't see the "hardly used" part as a value.

    A dealer in my area priced me the exact same mower about a month ago. His had 100 hours on it, so said the hour meter that the previous owner had installed. The "asking price" was $1900. I was kind of interested in it. I am wondering what you thought about your mower. I agree with the other poster, the mower would be a good back up if you go with a stander. I hope this helps in some way..

    If you have a Great Dane dealer in your area demo the Super Surfer before you make a purchase! They are easier to use, faster, more comfortable, more efficient etc. I have been using them for years.
