I just wanted to get some feedback on what you think this mower is worth. Owner said it had 1400 plus hours. Here is the link on Craigslist http://wilmington.craigslist.org/grd/2812888911.html
You're only thinking that mower will go to 1750 hours? I'm thinking more along the lines of at least 3000 hours if it's been taken care of.1000, maybe. Not trying to burst your bubble, but its 11 years old with 80% or more of its usable life gone. Just my opinion, but I wouldn't make any offer on it.
With that said, it's still a Cub Cadet.You're only thinking that mower will go to 1750 hours? I'm thinking more along the lines of at least 3000 hours if it's been taken care of.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy that mower for an instant. Age doesn't really come into it unless the parts become hard to get. The only parts on the mower that are affected by age is the wiring and the rubber parts. If it's been garage kept the wiring should have much, much more life in it. There isn't much in the way of rubber on it outside of the tires and fuel lines. Both are cheap and easy to replace.
