    So I've been thinking of getting a brand new exmark 2013 with the efi kohler 29 hp would run me around 11,500

    Or I found this one last night and got it down to 6500. I probably will mow around 20 properties a week with it. What would you do?

    The used machine looks great on those pictures if hours are original I would go with the used machine :waving:

    Yeah it's from 2009 which should be okay right? I'm assuming its original hours by the look of the mower.

    Ya those are low hours and definately a good price... Better snag it up before price goes up in the spring...

    No doubt about that.
    I'm gonna check it out today and see if it looks okay.

    Also talked to the dealer I was supposed to buy the new one from and they'll refund the 500 dollars that I put down. I did tell them that I would have them service it, that way I'm not totally gyspying them out.
