    I'm looking at a few used ZTR's and need some assistance in what to check for before I purchase them. All four are from "good" dealers and have warranties.

    Three of them are demo models with full warranties:

    - Ferris 1000Z 23hp 52" for $5500
    - SCAG Tiger Cub 23hp 52" for $6300
    - Exmark Z 25hp 61" for $5900

    The other is a completely rebuilt machine w/ a 1 year warranty.

    - BOB-CAT 25hp Kohler 62" for $6500

    My question is what should I be looking for at each of these to make sure that there are no problems with them. Or should I simply rely on the warranties?

    Thanks

    Buy the demo unit's over the rebuilt one because the demo unit's will have a full factory warranty just like a new one and if their is anything wrong with them you will definately fing it out before the warranty is over. Of those 3 the exmark is definately the way to go and I would buy it quick before anyone else gets it because at that price it ain't going to be there for long.
