    I would keep waiting, Its getting to be the off season, and people will start wanting to sell their equipment. I got a 38" JD with 14hp kawi, that was homeowner used for 400 talked him down from 500, there are deals out there...

    If I remember right you are in maryland, why not something like this? Brand new Vanguard, and Floating, which IMO is a must. http://harrisburg.craigslist.org/for/3356494731.html

    Keep waiting. 3 years ago I bought an eXmark TTHP 36" ( floating, hydro), Stihl back-pack blower, Stihl edger and a Stihl Trimmer for $1200. I sold off the trimmer and edger for $300 and still use the blower and eXmark today.

    Not saying you'll find that good a deal but during the off season some people need cash.

    No one is going to be able the question , there are too many variables. If you are worried about reliability, go buy new with a warranty.
