    Outside of the truck, this is my biggest investment.

    $2900 - Less than an hour of mowing on it! Hydro - Floating Deck 44" Deck.

    I really don't know much more about it, but I need to learn quick!

    The guy bought it at an auction last year. Do you think I can fill out the registration card and get warrenty coverage?

    I found out that I need to learn howo to:

    Back up a trailer

    Change the Mower Oil

    Change and sharpen the blades (I think I am going to use ACE HardWARE.

    AND MUCH MORE!!!! I don't feel ready, but at least I have the equipment.

    Congrats on the new mower...seems like an excellent price. Is it a single or dual hydro?

    That is a steal and a very heavy built nice piece of equipment. It almost surely is a dual hydro. I am a scag guy but I am really impressed with these units.

    It's dual. Toro doesn't make a single.

    FT, I might have a bid for you. It's in the Lake Phalen area. PM me if Interested?

    Does the sharpener help you balance too?
