    I picked up a client that has 2 toro z500 series mowers around 3 years old. One is a 52" Kohler engine that has 0 hrs NEVER CUT GRASS. Second is a 60" with 50hrs. The guys bought them both at same time and had heart issue and never used the 52 just the 60 a few times. What would be a good price to buy these mowers at? He is looking for 10,000 for the pair. Thanks.

    $10,000 sounds like a good price. He probably has over $15,000 into them + $1000 in tax. If they are in excellent condition/ like new and garage kept you can't go wrong if you are going to use both of them. What size engines 27 kohler? I would offer $9000 for both and see what he says. I have a 2009 Zmaster 500 with 27 kohler and really like it especially the cut. Good Luck!

    I know a Toro Dealer sold a Z500 1 year old, 60" Demo with 27 Kohler for $6800 plus tax two weeks ago. The mower had 65 hours on it. Two new hold over Z500's with 52 inch decks sold for $7100 plus tax and a new hold over Z500 with 60" deck sold for $7800 plus tax. I know the dealer sold the five machines over a two day period because I bought one of the 52's.

    Personally, I think you are considering a heck of deal.
