    This guy wants 2k for this. Im thinking for this unit hes about 800$ too high.

    Doesn't look like it has the turbo force deck, He states it has about 40 hours, but no hour meter.....

    Feedback please.

    Go look at it. From the pictures it looks like it is in pretty good shape.

    Im trying to determine the possible vintage. It looks like the old Pro Line with the steel discharge chute. IMO that dates it at least 5 years old.

    How do we know it's not stolen and why is it that every time I see a thread asking
    about some mower for sale the dang thing is always dripping wet with water?

    I doubt its stolen as the seller indicates he has the manuals. Most stolen chit ain't got no manuals if ya know what I mean.

    Wet? Im guessing he just hosed it off. Clean stuff sells better I guess....

    Its a decently old model. $2k s a little steep. A grand is more like it, looks like its in nice shape, but still...

    That mower is older than dirt. It has an old Kawasaki single cylinder engine on it. Kawasaki stopped making those around 2002, 2003. Without being able to see and inspect it in person it's hard to tell. Dirt washes off, bad bearings don't.
