    I found a 48'' single hydro 4 years old 13 or 14 horse. Dealer says LCO had it as a back up mower 100-200 hours. Ran the mower and all seems good on it. It starts on 1- 2 pulls. The thing about it is the guy who had it never cleaned it by the cosmetics. However, it is just plain dirty, no dents or rust. The price tag is $1795.00 he says he will take $1700 + tax. Is this a good deal? This will be the first used piece of equipment I have bought if I buy it. I do not have enough use with my accounts to justify a new one. This e-bay link shows a mower that is almost identical. What do you think? Thanks.

    This is too much IMO. The market has too many mowers of that type for a 4 year old one to command 1700 dollars, again, IMO! Tell'em you'll give him a grand for it and have the cash on you when you go!
