    Hi i'm new to the site and am looking for some suggestions.

    I'm looking at this used mower to buy. It's Exmark lazerZ 60" cut, 25 hp Kohler with 325 hours.It is a 1999 model. Thats the only thing that i dont like but the hours are kinda low. All for $3,000. Is this a good deal?

    If you're sure about the hours, that's less than one year for commercial use, it's a good deal. Probably has a trivantage deck which is a good deck, and 25 hp is plenty of power for a 60" deck. Granted it's older but, but that year is still a good mower.

    sounds like a good deal. Low hours thats always good. Has it been sitting?

    Also I had a 98 or a 99 model, and I ran it till it had 3600 hours. It was still cutting great till I sold it.

    I think when u buy used equipment your just buying someone's problem's! $3000 is a good bit of money for someone that don't have it to spare. ( Not saying u don't.) I would say it is a great deal but i would have the local power shop look it over. Just my out look on it.

    No the man that owns it just used it at his residence. Yes im positive it has only 325 hours. Rides and cuts great. Looks really great for its age.

    Dude its only $3000 bucks. He's upgrading to a Kubota and the dealer offered him $2900 trade-in so that should say something.
