    :D I picked my first toy today. I bought a demo 52" wright stander w/ 17hp Kaw, electric start only 200 hours for $5100..00. They put on new blades and gave it a fresh oil change, it also includes the new warranty.

    Is this a good deal?

    i can buy that machine new in Colo. for 5200. I would change all the fluids now and hope for the best.
  3. Honestly, you could have made a better deal, but maybe not this time of year. That's not a lot of power for that size of machine, but enough if you're not a big guy or cutting heavy grass. I used one of those for about a month before I ordered a 23hp 52" Wright Stander. The hydraulic fluid should have been changed at 160 hours, so get that done. Never the less, it’s FINE mower and you’ll make lots of money with it.
