    what would you pay for a 04 exmark lazer with a 27hp kohler that runs good, everything works and in decent condition with 3300 hours?

    I ask here because the only people who would want to buy it would be someone new to the business. Its not for sale, I just want to see what people think it may be worth.

    i would have to see it but, it all depends on a few things, have the pumps and wheel motors been replaced, is the deck woren out and needs replacing, is the motor original, does it need replace ment, how tight are the controls. but with that about of hours, if i was going to buy it and it was in good shape i wouldn't see my self paying more than $2,500. but i am no expert so bring it to your dealer and ask them, my dealer does it all the time

    I wouldn't buy a used mower with 3300 hrs.

    52, its a lazer not a phaser.

    $2500 sounds fair.I just look at the hours and I know I wouldnt buy it with that many hours, but since I own it I think its worth the money.

    If that 3,300 isn't a typo I wouldn't give squat for it.

    I consider 3,300 super high hrs. It doesn't matter how good the regular maint has been, a usability issue is more likely than not right on the horizon.

    hydro pump and wheel motors have already exceeded their oem lifespan but that is common.

    so what is it worth? who knows if it could last just 1 week with me on one of
    my larger routes it would generate thousands so whats it worth? you decide....
