    If you know him and he does maintenance his equipment well you should be ok with that price.

    Some here will say lower, some will say higher. Personnally I don't think of them like cars that take a beating on price after you drive off. I think of them more like trucks, they just hold the resale value better.

    52" deck is the best all around deck. (My opinion) I can put a 52" on residential properites easier. A 60" would sometimes be too big for landscaped properites. 52" is also good if you do have larger areas also.
