I just can't seem to sell this thing. I've had a lot of people say they're going to buy it but then don't have the money. My loss is your gain. First reasonable offer takes it. If you don't have the cash please don't waste my time. Aluminum grass catcher is included. This mower has no more than 100 hours of use on it. I bought it in October of 2006. I have run it occasionaly to keep the engine fresh. Call me at 832-260-3388.
