    Looks like a sweet mower, don't know what they retail for, but it seems a little high?

    Oh yea i forgot to say I live in canada so that is why it might be a little high, but I have no idea what they retail for so maybe that is way to high, thats why i'm on here asking you guys cause i don't know anything about mover's..

    no, he can be that way!! it is fine mower, we have three. only issues we had were some warranty covered oil pan gasket leak.

    lots of power, very easy to maintain. not for use in small areas due to weight though.
    they run around 1.5-12K new here so judge from that.

    Its the diesel, the motor should be fine with regular maintenance. You will wear everything else like spindles and such at 2000 to 2500 hours from what iv seen. I think its high if there only going for 12k. A lot of money, but 8k for a mower with almost 10000 hours is even worse. jmo!

    depends on what the dollar exchange is to consider if this price is high. with 1000 hrs here the mower would be worth about 6-7K . so , maybe offer less.

    you can easily get twice the hours or 2000-2500 out of it.mkae sure to keep everything greased etc. the spindles are very tough, and are known to not wear out easliy either. much tougher than most commercial mowers. a completely different design. i have gone 1000 hrs on all thesame belts even. no cracks or wear. these machines are truely built tougher than most, i have seen it through manyyears of running kubota ztrs. the old ones did have tranny issues though, but not the new ones. they over compensated with those to make sure.
