    i'm looking to buy a used exmark from a guy and was wondering what you guys think. the exmark is about 10 years old. it has a 13 horse kai engine. belt drive. has bout 400 hours on it....was used commercially for 1 year, then just for his residential lawn. he said it starts on the first or second pull. he wants $375.00. what do you think?

    For $375, I would go for it. Even if it needs something, as long as it is not rusted to bits, it would be worth it IMO.

    Looks like mine, of course mine is a 2000 I think. It is a good mower. If that one runs like he says and has been lubed regularly, you will have a mightly fine piece of equipment. I gave $500 for mine and I like it for the backyards and some really small residences that are two small for by 54" JD Ztrn.

    Velke too?? $375.00 there is no doubt. go for it. 2 days of cutting is more than that.
