    I Think the Current Bid Is a 1,ooo Dollars, thats not Bad For a 14Hp Kaw On a Fixed Deck Viking. If It Has Only 300+ Hours Then That's Not a Bad deal. It Is a Little Underpowered But worth it. John

    $1000.00 is the minimum bid, which is also the starting bid. I thought maybe he saw a "Buy Now" button or something.

    There was no buy it now for it. I am seriously thinking about this machine and the honda. I am not sure if I can come up with the money this far from the first though.

    The after -market hr. meter intalled on new mower is likely a bogus claim.

    I'm with Ultimate Lawn. Something isn't right with that mower. Why did they take the hour meter off to sell it? And if all he wants is $1000 why didn't someone locally buy it? A person usually only lists on Ebay as a last resort. I could get an easy $2000+ for that mower here.

    Yea, I've been watching that mower as well...I have one just like it I've been using for parts and I'm about to rebuild it for a back-up...figure it would prolly take about $1000.00, then saw this mower...I doubt I bid on it cause it's in Washington and I'm in Florida :(

    I disagree with Richard Martin. I have sold two commercial mowers on Ebay for top dollar and not because I couldn't sell them or they had problems. Both ran perfect and were in great shape. I just wanted an easy cheap way to advertise where I could show PICTURES of how nice they looked and room for a thorough description and reach a much bigger audience than the local paper for less money. I have been shuffling around my "fleet" this Spring and have one there for sale now. It's a great mower but I need the cash more than I need a 2nd walk behind sitting in the shed not getting used.

    I would, however, be wary of sellers w/o high feedback. I bought a mower there advertised as "runs and cuts great" and the PTO was dead on arrival. He had bypassed the safety bar and even then it didn't work. The only reason I bought it there was because it was dirt cheap and I happened to have the parts it needed to get running again. I sold both of my previous mowers to local buyers, but they found my mowers on Ebay. Buying w/o inspection is risky, but if you can lay eyes on it before paying, that's much safer.
