    I just wanted to know if $4750 for a used 01 scag 52 inch 24 hp kaw zrt with 298 hours on it could be a deal or not. The mower was supposable owned by a farmer who used it on his own land. It is in good shape not a lot of scrapes and the like. The dealer said he greased it almost too much:) Any help would be great.

    It's not even broke in yet!! Sounds like a reasonable offer. Have you priced the new ones (52")? I would offer $4000 and see what comes about. Just remember it's your money. Just my .o2 cents Good Luck!!

    I agree, it's probably a fair price for the number of hours. But I would also offer less and see what happens.

    That's some low hours...if its correct. 300hrs, 5 years...thats 60/yr or about 2hrs per week during a 30 week season. Some people put 60 on it 2-3 weeks let alone a year. I agree..offer a lower price...remember you can always go up, its very tough to go down.

    It does seem allitle high considering pre season sales of a 48 tiger cub are 6,000 with the 24 hp engine. But with 300 hrs it really isnt even broken in!
