    I am getting ready to buy a used 36" toro proline hydro w/elctric start and sulky, with 923 hrs on it. Am I getting a good deal at $1200.00 or is that to high a price?

    That sounds like a pretty good deal to me. I have had very good luck w/ 36" Pro-lines. My oldest has way over 3,000 hrs on it. Probably nearing 4,000.

    Sounds good if the engine is at least a 14,16 would be great. so far no real complaints about my 2 t-bars love em.

    Sounds like a great deal for a mower like that.

    over 900 hrs seems like alot to me when you can buy a new one for around $2400.00 at alamia.com and get free shipping. with 900 hrs on it and $1200 for it and sulky may not be a bad deal but why not buy a new one, it takes years of use to rack up 900 hrs unless you mow a 100 yards a week.

    The one on Alamia for $2400 is a belt-drive. The one in question here is hydro-drive and retails for somewhere between $4800 and $5400 depending on the exact model.

    I figure you should be able to get at least 2000 hours on a mower like that before the engine is shot.

    $1200 is a good price. 900 hours is low.
