    A friend of mine is trying to sell me an Exmark 48-12.5k-5. Its a 48" walk behind from 1992. Deck and body seem all right but pretty much all parts either need to be replaced or seriously worked on. The engine doesn't pull at all. Not sure if its seized up or rusted. There is oil still in the engine. All in all its in pretty bad shape. So, I was wondering if anyone had any insight on what the worth of this machine might be. I am interested in it as a project for a potential backup. Like I said it is a friend of mine who owns it and neither one of us has any idea on a price. Any advise would be helpful. Thanks
