    As soon as my mower sells (see other thread to view ad for my Great Dane Scamper), I would like to buy or trade for a stand-up mower, or even possibly a Walker. I only have about $1500-$1700 to spend at maximum. It can have problems that need fixed, as long as it is nothing expensive like a needing a new engine. If it needs a hydro motor or wheel motor, that's no problem for me. The models I would be interested in would be a 48" or 52" Great Dane Super Surfer, John Deere 647 or 657, or a 48" or 52" Wright Stander. Also a 48" Walker mower would be a possibility. I will not consider any mowers with Briggs & Stratton engines, only Kawasaki and Kohler. Post photos and some details about the mower if you have one. I am located near Peoria IL, and would be willing to drive up to 4 hours distance to pick up. Thanks for your help.

    Yes, I would be VERY interested once my mower sells. How much would you take for it? 900 hours doesn't worry me a bit. I have the 15HP Kawasaki KAI (basically the same engine), and it is my favorite because of it's huge power, and reliability. I have a Great Dane dealer right here in Peoria, which is nice.

    I am looking to get 2500.00 for it. Or Trade, what have you got trade plus cash. The machine is nice but it just does not fit our needs. Let me know. Thanks

    I might consider that. I have a 48" Great Dane Scamper that I am selling (see my other post). I might be able to do a trade plus cash once my other mower sells.
