I know Ive been asking alot of these questions lately but I have come across another mower. It is a 36" Scag belt drive with Kolher engine. Its a 1998-2000 model, Kohler engine that has been rebuilt at one point in time. The guy is asking $500.00 for it. My Idea: Since the season is over in 2+ months here, I was thinking of rebuilding this machine. Repaint it with the Scag orange, replace belts, spindle bearings, and blades during the winter. With all of this, Im thinking I would be around $700.00 for a fresh machine minus the engine itself. Would you recommend doing this or spending my money elsewhere?
