    It's a joke.
    More then 3yrs old. Cant remember when thay made them with Kholer 20hp engines.
    520 hrs are because he disconnected it.
    Also the battery is missing & the bracket is way bent.
    Take a look at the sides & paint. Kinda intresting how it's missing right in front of the wheel. Only thing that would casue that is by killing fence posts trying to get into back yards.
    How much has this guy used it if he only changed his oil once so far.

    I bought one in 2001 for under $4,000 NEW Sulky was arround $200. 19 HP Kaw. engine... larger tires etc...

    Lesco 52" Hydrostatic Walk Behind Mower. I would like to get $1250 for this mower, but there is not a reserve and the starting bid is a lot less. This mower is over $5,500 new. This mower also includes a Lesco brand sulky, which is a little device you can stand on for those extra long and tedious mowing projects, and is about $500 new. This mower has a 20hp Kohler Command Engine with Electric Start. This walk behind mower out performs Toro, Exmark, Bunton, Bobcat and any other mower out there in pure cleanliness of cut. This mower makes beautiful lines, make your lawn look like a golf course!!!

    I think this is a very interesting comparison he makes. :dizzy:

    well if i went with joshuas thinking i would not have any mowers

    for all we know its been sitting outside for 3 years and too me it looks like the batterys out of it not bent
    i think if a guy could pick it up for $1200 that would be a pretty nice buy IMO

    The Kohler serial number starts with 26, whick = 1996.

    27=1997, 28=1998, 29=1999, 30=2000, 31=2001, 32=2002

    He claims 3 yrs old but its closer to 6.

    Upon closer look the sticker stated "Meets 1995-1998 California Emmisions standards"... So 1996 sounds about right...
    so it's about 6 yrs old...

    Also, the front rubber pice that holds the deck cover on is missing along with the from castor pins.
    Don't look that guy used it much on his own lawn. check out the gass against the deck.

    Check out the weight loss pills this guy bought & the 2 negitive comments this guy recieved..

    Mowers ya buy from friends... Cars you dont...:)

    Thanks guys... I am looking for a used WB Scag, but it seems like the only ones I find locally have 2500 plus hours on them, not something that a non mechanical guy like me wants to depend on... Any suggestions for where to look???

    if I could test cut that mower and it met expectation, I'd give him $800 in a heart beat!

    that's a great mower! and even if it is six years old it can have reasonable use on it.

    the life if that motor depends on oil and air filter service more than the number of hours.
