Good question, the first one was cleaned before I got there and I figured the other one was just dirty. Couple that with the fact that the owner was waiting after closing time so we just threw it up and took off. Of course I'm kicking myself now for not inspecting it but thanks for making me feel worse(LOL)...(not really)Why didn't you look at it before you got it home
Well I didn't run this one but I'll tell the guy to save it for you cause I sure ain't takin it. I'm not taking a mower that is already rusting. It's not just washers ,the axle is rusting and the hydro pumps have rust. If you want to pay full price for a(outdoor) display model be my guest.You have a very bad example here.
There's a quote that goes around the trucking industry.
Chrome don't get you home.
Meaning you can have a bright shiny truck, but if it ain't running on the inside, you're not making any money.
Well??? What's your example?? Your bright shiny "new" mower took a crap on the first strip.
What about the one with "a couple of rusty nuts and washers"??? You're working with that one, right??
Get to work, make the money. IF it's that big of an issue, tell your dealer to get you the $2.64 worth of new nuts and washers....
