Just my opinion. lets say you could buy a new one for 7000$. 1200 hours is probably half the life of the mower and at 3500$ you are paying half the price. No deal there. try to get it for 2500$ then if it is in good shape you would be gettin a deal. Also 20hp gas is not much Hp for pushing a 62&quot; deck.

A new one is $11,000.00<p>It's a very good buy lawrence.<p>I don't know if I'd want one of those or a new Z for 6,000, but that's up to you.

<br>That sounds like a decent deal Mr. Stone<p>Especially since you have an immediate need for the unit and will have very limited transportation expenses related to it. <p>That'll make two 62's in your fleet.....awesome baby...<p>One thing to be careful about - test out the machine for at least 20 minutes(specifically the hydraulics). Any deficiencies in the hydraulics should show up within this time frame.<p>Good luck..<p>Ed

Oops:) I was just guessing on the price. Well then if it is liquid cool the engine will last much longer. Then it is a good deal. If not then the engine may last only 3000 hours. From experience I had one last 2600 hrs. $11000 sounds like alot of money for a 20 hp to begin with it must have central air and radio. I go with Lazer buy a new lazor with a warrenty
 
The owner of the golf course has this gas job<br>left (20 hp Onan) and wants to buy a new oil bruner to add to the two other 72&quot; mow units 4WD models. <p>He is a motorcycle and dragster (car) drag racer and he always keeps his stuff clean and<br>in good working order.<p>He will hold the unit until July so I can pay<br>for the unit in cash.<p>It seams to be a perfect mower for the school<br>district job. I am just doing the athletic fields this season but there is another 35 acres of just plain turf I want to include in next years contract<br>at this location. Since all the districts schools and fields are at this one a location<br>a big groundsmaster at that price has to be<br>a winning combo.

In my area, the distributor who handles Onan is not the most reliable, and you may have to wait longer for parts than if it were a different manufacturer but if that isnt a concern for you, IMO it sounds like a decent deal.<p>Bill

I think it would be a good deal.We bought a new 52 inch groundsmaster and it was 6,400.That 20 horse also has plenty of power

The 62&quot; is 4600$ more than the 52&quot;. Sounds like a big jump to me. 10&quot; is alot more deck to add to a 20 hp gas. You can buy a 3 cylinder Kubota deisel belly more for 10,500$ new. What makes the Groundmaster 62&quot; run 11000$? Just curious they don't sell them around here that I know of.
