    Just wondering if anyone out there in the Indiana area has a decent 50"60" ride on mower for sale?
    I only have 4 acres, but am going to be taking care of Moms 5 acres from now on.
    Really can't justify $6,000-$7,000 for a new one.
    Thought I'd put the word out incase someone is thinking about trade-ins or replacements this fall.
    Thanks for allowing my question

    Nothing you'd be interested in. I am currently using a riding Craftsman with 50" deck......cuts fine, just super SSSLLLOOOWWWW>
    I am a school teacher with a 3 year old so my "mowing time" is near zero..Only saturday mornings so grandma can help watch while I mow HER yard. Not complaining, I owe her more than I can ever repay.
    Not to sound like a jerk, but I know nothing about these mowers, I just figure I'd buy a commercial -something, and it should give me many years of mowing for just two yards.
    Do you have a price for your mower? Thanks for taking the time to send me this offer. mark-in Ft. Wayne
