    I am looking at buying a Grasshopper 725 front mount mower. Are they good mowers and are they dependable?

    Used one the past three seasons and never had a problem. It seemed to be very reliable and did a good job for me.

    I found a used one with the 61" deck and collection system. It also has the deck lift system. They are asking $11,000.00. Too much? It has 27 hours.

    That is the one I was using. In 2001, my boss bought it new for 11,000. Hope that helps.

    I'd say $10,400 at the very most and thats if its got a full warranty. If not then i'd say $10,000 at the very most. Hope that helps.
