    I bought one of those used back in 1996 when I was starting out. They are good machines, I sold it a few years ago, and it is still going.

    I'd have to say that mower is at newest a 1989 model, probably older. I just bought a brand new Bobcat 36 inch 15hp V-Twin for 2799+tax. I'd put the 900 down and finance, since Sheffield has 0% for 24 months right now. Heck, a new Bobcat "Classic" goes for about 2 grand out the door. I think you can do far better for yourself.

    Guys, it's Canadian dollars but this is close to the high price for this mower.

    So if it's $900 Canadian, how much is that in American?

    From the limited view in that picture, it looks to be decent. But if it is as old as someone else said(1989 or older), I wouldn't pay $900 for it.

    Canadian $900 is $743 US but we don't tip so it's not too bad a price.
    Here in Ontario the Amish buy every used walk behind they can find. I wouldn't be able to make much money on that thing at $900 so I would pass on it. However if you are going to use it yourself then it might be worth it depending on it's actual condition. New ones are scarce and expensive here.
