    Hey men - got a question. I have a mower that we no longer need and is in decent shape. Was at a dealership this afternoon with it on the trailer and a young kid came up and offered me $500 for it. I really haven't a clue what it's worth - but I'm thinking around $250. I don't wanna jip a kid that's starting out in business - so any ballpark figures of what you think it's worth would be appreciated. It's been well maintained and don't have a clue how many hours on it total - but definitely has lots of hours of life left in it.

    What size and brand is the motor? Is a belt-drive or a hydro? How old is it? Unless it is REAL old and REAL beat, $250 sounds pretty low to me.

    It's a 12.5hp Kawasaki - belt drive. It's 6 years old. Was used maybe a total of 25 hours in 2002 & 2003.

    $500 sounds good to me

    So it is a 1998 model? $500 doesn't sound too bad to me. In my market you could probably get even more for it. Probably closer to $750+.
