Rolled off the line in Beatrice, NE just a few weeks ago, i purchased it 2 weeks ago today. Has a little under 25 hours all put on it by me. Great mower, the 28hp Kawasaki runs great, this machine cuts great and has handled all i have thrown at it(unlike the junker 25hp Kohler model). Oil and filter has been changed twice(at 4.5 hours & 19.1 hours) with conventional oil, by the time of sale I will probably have switched it to synthetic. Asking $8500, thats the new price less taxes so basically you are getting a brand new mower without paying the taxes. I will assist with delivery or shipping.
