    I am thinking about selling my Lazer Z HP, 23 Kawi, 52" deck, looks brand new. It is a year 2000 model with 130 hours on it. What do you think I could get for it?

    A Kubota diesel ZTR with 1,100 hours is for sale locally for $5,500 (28HP, 60" deck).

    Whatcha think?

    Thanks,
    John

    Howdy,
    I know it is tough to put a value on used equiptment, I just want to get a feel if it would be worthwhile to sell and buy the diesel.

    From what I see on the new $5,500 sounds good for a diesel.

    Thanks

    Its hard to say, i saw a 60 in 25 horse fuel injected exmark with 4200 hours go for 4000 dollars at auction this summer. depends on the market around you. I would probably price it at 3500 to 4000 range. age doesnt matter much on a exmark ztr from what i have seen in the past, just the hours and the shape of the machine.

    I was thinking somewhere around $4.5K

    The diesel I am considering to replace it is a ZD28 Kubota with 1,100 hours, seller is asking $5.5K could offer $5K. :confused:

    I did a search for the ZD28, read a couple threads about weight, and trans problems, hmmm.

    Any opinions would be great.

    i would keep the exmark over the kubota. we ran a kubota for a bit (demo). for me it was too big, heavy, bulky, and just felt weird mowing. definately like the exmark better in my opinion.

    I think it just depends on the applications.

    Often guys will buy a mower that is too small to really reap out the production on their accounts. A bigger mower is then warranted and fits the application better.

    If you on the other hand bought the right size mower for your application, then yes I can totally see where you might be coming from there.

    Not really a production issue here. :D

    Basically want to get the entire fleet diesel. :) Any more opinions on the ZD28? Thanks

    John,

    Is fuel type the only reason you want the ZD28? I would think the Exmark with only 130 Hr would be more reliable then the unknown history of the ZD28. If it were me I would stick with the known reliable zero with few hours over the Kubota. Just my two cents....
