    The hours seem exceptional low for a machine that's 7 years old??? :confused:

    How is it that there are so few hours on it?

    Actually I have not had this very long. I picked it up for a friend who then did not come up with the cash so I'm trying to turn it over. I would love to be able to keep it but my mowing business dosn't need anything this large, or nice.

    I suspect that the last guy just had it for mowing his lawn, and because it's a neat machine, and that he found it to be a bit big for his needs so he just sat on it.

    Well, here are some pictures of it.

    Have a great day!

    Feel free to make me an offer.

    Have a great evening!

    That's one clean tractor, not sure if it's worth $10K though. Front cuts were all the rage "back in the day" now all the commercial guys want are ztr's. I sold my Kubota F-2400 for $3K a few yrs ago to a homeowner with a really big lawn, none of the commercial cutter's were interested.

    Could be. I figured it was worth close to this since a local dealer has a show model with similar hours for $14k and it is only two wheel drive. That one is newer in years ('07 I think) and has one of the larger engines, but I'm not sure that's any better since these 18hp ones seem to have plenty of power.

    Also a beat Lesco 7400 with 4k hrs just sold at the auction two weeks ago for $4500.
    That one also has the bigger engine then the one I've got for sale.

    That's about all I have to go by for price as these aren't particularly common.

    Do you know, is the bigger engine a big deal? Or is it mainly beneficial if you're running a large deck?

    <Do you know, is the bigger engine a big deal? Or is it mainly beneficial if you're running a large deck?>

    Sounds like enough h.p. considering the deck size and it's a diesel. Have you tried craigslist or any other "for sale" sites? Also consider making the price $9500., it just sounds better, imo. (old used car sales tactic) Good Luck
