    Is $3445 a good price for a pistol grip Exmark Turf Tracer HP 52" with 200-300 hours? I am buying through a dealer. It was used by a retirement home once a week to mow THIER OWN grass. Never Trailered. No Sulky.

    Without ECS I would not pay that much for it. A member on this site has a 52" with ECS for sale for $2500. He is near Lansing. I will PM you the info.

    It has a 15 hp engine. No ECS. I'm not sure of the year. No more than a few years old though.

    15 hp is to small. You need at least 17. The machine is a floating deck hydro...right. I would only use one with 19 + hp

    if i rember right from last time i was looking at exmarks they are all 15 hp kawi. that is a bad price with no ECS your gonea want it. Im getting a viking with ECS from 1500 so id say get it down to 2500 or so range

    15hp are what come on 36", I would look for at the very least a 17 and prefer a 19. I wouldn't even consider it with out ECS controls.

    I would keep looking

    my 2 cents. littlenic

    I would say 15 is decent. I ran a 16hp 52" hydro last season and it did ok. I would definitly go with at least a 17 hp if I was buying it new. I think that price is fair but I think it should be a little cheaper (like $2700-3000),
