What he said! Also that is not a bad price on that mower, but maybe could get him down a few hundred and make it a very good deal. Funny thing is depending on what part of the country you are in effects the price big time. In my area deere will bring top dollar while you can't give an exmark away! And it other parts the exmark bring top dollar. Pizz poor dealer support hurt exmark bad in my area.Prior to running the mower, inspect it to make sure there aren't any visable leaks on or around the mower. Drive the unit around the parking lot and make sure the hydro pumps are responsive. Park the mower in a clean spot and let it run for a while, after letting it run inspect the area to see if the mower leaked any fluids (hydro oil, engine oil).
