    its a 61" encore with a 22hp kohler. 3200 hours, and he says its gently used. when i asked him how could it be gently used with that many hours and heres his response. also $4800 for it.:dizzy:
    "It wasnt used comercialy as in mowing as a business and you cant tell me there isnt a diffrence between mowing your own property which you keep all the trash picked up and mowing others property which usaly is full of hazards also a person tends to take better care about something you own and have paid your own hard earned money for as opposed to someone who works for a mowing service who dosent know about the equipment or is to ignorant to care how they treat it. Thank you for your question"

    He has a 5 acre yard. Let's say one cut per week it takes him 5 hours to cut that with that giant mower. That is 260 hours per year. So that is mower is 12 years old?
