Is 1500 hours to many for a used zero turn? Just wondering, thanks guys.
Depends on the maintanence performed during those 1500 hours IMO.
Lets say it was taken care of average!
A lot of hours buy it cheap,figure if your not pleased and you want to sell it what's it worth.
This is all gonna relate to price, number of hours, you already covered maintenances & your final commitment to repairs or final expectations
2 summers ago .... bought a 2001 Walker with a 25hp Kohler .... we'll maintained ....lots of maintenance receipt ....new front deck, tires, seat, belts & small stuff
Had 1500 hours on it .... price was $3500 .... figured the engine had another 1000 hrs, n the hydro's good till same time frame
Last Spring had to finally replace the engine at round 2800 hrs ....hoping for more ....cost installed was $1800 .... just had to replace the left hydro at 3600 hours (800 on the new engine) another $800 installed ...right hydro should be replace now ...but just having a new shaft n bearings put in for another $150 ... hope to get to next spring before all that
Point being ..... I still got what I think was a good deal ... all in all it's now a fair "new" machine n less than the cost of new at $8k .... which I did not have to come up with all at once ....it fit my need at the time & I realized that I was gonna have to replace major parts in time ....but I did get productivity out of it before I had to re-invest back into the mower
If it is a DIESEL, it is just broken-in !!!
I recently bought a 2000 Scag Tiger Cub w/ 1180 hours for $3200. I figured it was good for 2000 hours on average, which would last me a long time as a homeowner.
