What should this be worth...

    Anyone have a good guess? I just bought this mower last year, Hustler Walkbehind 54" 17 HP. I have cut back on the yards where I would need a walkbehind, only have about 60 hours on the mower. I thought that I could trade it toward another "Z". This would give me a more efficient backup mower. What percent of depreciation should I expect. Thanks

    How many hours are on it? You do realize that you will get more out of it by selling it outright than trading it to a dealer, although the trade would probably be less hassle.

    Were you planning on getting a smaller z or just having a z as a backup? If I were you I would just keep what you have and wear it out!

    Ask mowerconsultant or Doc Pete...they're the Hustler experts around here.

    It has around 60 hours on it. I know selling myself would normally do better but noone around here knows what a "Hustler" is. Could I hope for the $4000 range? Thanks

    If you put it on eBay or try to sell it like that, your looking at about $500-$1,000 less than you paid for it..
