Looking at buying a used SCAG

    There is a used scag 48" mower currently on ebay that is about 6-7 years old but looks like it is in great shape. The owner claims to only have used it in high school for 2 summers to mow 20 lawns and since then it has mostly been in storage.

    Assuming that this is true, is there much that could go wrong with the mower from sitting 4-5 years? How much do you think it is worth?

    Ever here the phrase "dont always believe what you hear"

    I would prolly keep that in mind. I sold my 33" which some guy in my church used only on his residential, when actually i bought it from a kid who did 25 lawns a week with it. People are not honest.
