    I saw on craigslist someone has a 2007 Exmark Lazer 60" ultra cut deck 23 hp air cooled kohler and only 63 hours. Homeowner use. It seems to good to be true but I wanted other opinions.....

    It is... When I was looking for mine I ran into several of these scams. For some reason they like to use ZTs nowadays. Feel free to pursue the oportunity. DONT: send money online, send a check via mail, accept his offer to ship it.... You need to see it in person, take it home on your trailer, and pay in cash... And EVEN IF this all happens... there's a good chance you're buying a stolen mower.

    Not trying to jump to conlcusions.... Have just spent a lot of time on craigslist and ebay.

    Be careful!

    That same post was on my local craigslist today. The exact same hours and price. I figured it was a scam.

    It's a scam. Reply to the ad and you will immediately get an auto response in poor English. At least that was my experience.
