    If it helps you at all, I bought a new 2009 Z510A back in April and paid $6500.00. Havent had any real issues with it and it works great. They aren't classified as a commercial mower though. But sounds like a good price to me.

    If I were you I'd go and see it in person and run it for a bit. With that said, what you have there is a great deal. These are just bellow a commercial grade mower and I haven't heard one complaint about the cut of the 7 Irons. This is a good mower to start out with or for smaller properties.
