    i got a 2006 simplicity champion 50" with a 20hp briggs vanguard. only has 53 hours. how much should i charge for it if i was to sell? i bought it to get into larger properties but i decided to go with smaller properties instead. as you can see, it never gets used. i paid 4500 for it by the way.

    thats what i was going for rod. think i might go with a hydro exmark or might try out a better 44. i love the simplicity's cut and handling. its alot tougher then you'd think. got alot of ferris commercial parts in it. we'll see how much i get for it in a couple months when i go to sell it. thanks for the feedback.

    i would think about 45% of new cost. it a home owners mower. i know i do not have good typing skills .but i know better than to buy a cheap home owners mower to use commercial!! hydrostatic drives do not last like pumps and wheel motors .so i think about $2100 to maybe $2800. 07 i bought 3
    bobcats predators 61inch deck with 33hp for $6800. that is alot more mower for just $ 2300 more .
