    Im selling my mower and my dealer(purchased from)has been giving me the run around on what it is worth. Anyone out there help me?

    2003 Lazer HP 23Hp Kawi 52" Deck with ultravac system has about 550+/- hours on it. Overall in good shape other than scratches in paint.


    thanks in advance.

    I paid $5.5K for my 2005 23 HP Kohler 52" Lazer HP. It was a demo with 100 hrs and full 2 year warranty purchased from an authorized dealer.

    Take your purchase price (less tax) of both the Lazer and the UV bagger, add them together and then take half of that number and start there.

    Personally, I've had much better luck selling privately. My used mowers that I sell are gone over better than most dealers do. You have to keep your buyer AWAY from new shiney mowers (which they see at a dealer). Larger acerage homeowners LOVE good used commercial equipment.

    Thanks for your help. TLS, this will be a private sale. I was trying to get their "Blue Book" value. I finally pinned my dealer in a corner and got this figures from him. Mower $3850.00 to $4390.00 depending on condition etc. Bagger $570.00 to $880.00. So I figured I would start with $5,000.00 and see what happens.

    Is your Ultra-Vac a QDS (quick dump) type?? If so, I might be interested in it..
