    My local Toro dealer has a Z253 62" cut with a 23hp kohler motor
    with 82 hrs on it. I have called around and found that I can buy
    a new one for 7150.00 tax included. My dealer wants 6900.00
    for this machine tax included. I want to make an offer but not sure how much I should go. This is a 2001 demo unit. The dealer
    has a good reputation for service. Can you help me with pricing?

    Here in Tennessee they are running the same machine, brand new for advertised pricing of $6,999.00. For the little difference I would buy new. But if you make a low offer and they accept, does the unit come with a full warrenty, and what is covered? You need to know so you can make a good decision. Good luck!

    Thanks for your reply crazygator. They said that I would have
    the full warrenty. I was thinking of offering 6400.00. It still
    looks clean and it cuts good on my lawn.:)
