    iv been looking for another mower. i found a 52'' exmark with a 23hp kohler. i know its a lazer series but thats all i know. it has 1500 hrs on it and its had deck bearings, electric clutch and both hydraulic pumps replaced recently. do you think it would be worth $2600?? iv never bought used equipment so the reason im posting on here. thanks in advance!!!

    Used eqpt is ALWAYS a gamble...
    Having both pumps recently replaced...there is more than likely some damage to the wheel motors..
    Debris from the damaged pumps surely got chewed up by the wheel motors..
    Put a magnet in the hydro tank and give it a hard test drive before you hand over the money..

    There are a bunch of mechanics that can't diagnose an engine with hydralic lifters...:waving:
