    I'm assuming that's in your garage? If so, good job.

    They're dangerous, those sit-down things.

    Watch where your knees are if you ride that thing,
    if you come up on an incline the front casters will drive up,
    this in turn causes the rear handlebars and steel dashboard to come down,
    if your knees are in the way it spells bad news.

    Riding through a ditch, same thing.

    On the other hand you stole it for $500 lol

    That is surprising you didnt have to cash a large check and give the remainder back to the seller to get this deal!

    Hey, there's a scag almost just like this one in the stolen equipment thread. Just kidding. Great find. As long as the serial number isn't "rubbed off." I wish I could find a deal like that on CL. I keep looking but nothing but crap in my neck of the woods.

    And then you sell them? I'm looking for a great deal on a hydro, floating deck (Toro, Scag, etc.) about like what you've been finding.
