    Are you going to be using this commercially or on just your own yard? This mower at best is for a person that may mow their yard once a week. We have a dealer that sells snapper, DC and Husqu's and he sells very few husqu's. Have heard mixed opionions on them, some good but more bad. Not one LCO around here runs them at all, even their commercial made mowers. If you are going to be using it commercially I would pass on it.

    Pass, save up for a used commercial z. Those wheel pumps don't last long with daily abuse.

    No.

    That won't last you long unless you are doing your own yard only.

    IF you only have $2000 to spend get a 48" wb it will last much longer and stick with proven commercial mower brands.

    Even if I were thinking I might like to have a mower like that I wouldn't pay that much money for it. Here's one on Ebay, with less hours, for less money.

    And that guy is willing to take less. If I were interested in an almost 6 year old Husqvarna Z3815 I would probably give in the range of $800 to $1000 for it if it was in excellent condition. At 6 years you're starting to get past it's expected lifespan for the original rubbers and plastics. Any items which contain rubber or plastic should be replaced.
