I'm in the market for a ZTR mower, and since I live in Louisiana and many commercial lawn businesses I have spoken to like them, SCAG is probably my best fit also, especially due to our climate and often wet conditions. I am trying to get the most bang for my bucks, like most of us working class people, and with the increase in prices due to steel and fuel (shipping) prices, I have been looking for a good used mower instead of breaking the bank for a new SCAG. I have an opportunity to purchase a SCAG Model STT52A 23 CH- the 52 inch Turf Tiger with a 23 HP Kohler. It has 700 hours on it. It comes with the mulching kit, new mulching blades, extra set of new regular blades, new belts, new rear tires. The asking price for the mower is $5,000. The person who is selling this mower purchased the mower last year from an authorized dealer in Baton Rouge for $6,500 and all preventative maintenance has been performed on the mower. There had been a problem with the fuel system so a new carburetor was installed. They also changed out the fuel line and put in a new ignition coil. I ran it today and it cranked up with no problems and is in excellant shape. By the way, the current owner put 200 hours on it over the last year. There is no warranty left on this mower. Does this sound like a good deal? Any and all comments are welcomed. Thank you in advance!
