    I'm looking at getting a turf tracer before spring. I really like everything this one has to offer. The only thing that scares me is 554 hours in only 2 years with no warranty left. With that being said, what would you value this mower at?

    If the pictures are recent machine is on top shape he won't come down much
    Try $4500

    554 hrs is not that many hours but 8 grand for a new walk behind mower?!?! Sounds a little far fetched. I could be wrong but I hope I'm not. $4500 sounds a little better. Can't believe the price of mowers today:dizzy:.

    Just checked out some prices on eBay and they had a 48 demo for $6500 so I guess it not that far fetched. Crazy.....

    Yes these mowers new are not cheap the thing with any used piece of equipment
    You have to be careful always text equipment under load if you can and fully warm :waving:

    With that many hrs, just leaks, is the oil clean, (even if it is clean you can tell if it was changed often by looking for dark discoloration where the oil level is), tight spindles, does it start easy (make sure it's not warm when you try it). Just the obvious.
