    my local exmark dealer has a new exmark with .4 hours on it and a full warranty that he has had in full sun for 2 years, the paint is faded and the seat has yellowed but he is looking to move it at considerable discount, any body have any thoughts on what to look for in a machine that has been out in the weather this long?? it is the 27 kaw liquid cooled lazer z 60, I have been told to relube everything to push any water out of greaseable areas but I am most concerned about electrical items and also oil seals that may have dried out, any thoughts??????????????

    I would sure hope that your dealer does a full relube and checks over the whole machine before he sells it.....especially if it has the full warranty

    :cool2: :cool2: :cool2: :cool2: an ULTRACUT DECK !!!!!!!!!! send it to ME PLEEEEEEEASE !!!!:cool2: :waving: get it bud its a mower you cant hardly find brand new now. for my dealer to get me one it took him 2 and a half weeks but he found it in another state and brought it to me. unless you can find another one similar to it then one day ull probably regret not getting it.

    I wouldn't worry about the seals and electronics too much. I would drain the fuel system completely and flush it with dry gas. You should also change the anti-freeze and engine oil. I would also shorten the hydro oil cycle to about 25 hours on the first change.

    Its like a house, if you don't live in it, it begins to die, if he puts a full warranty on it and the price is right, go for it!

    if it was the mower i wanted i wouldnt worry at all. .4 hrs is most likely from moving it in and out daily. my mowers get wet alot, as do most. if its a big price discount id jump at it, it comes with its warrentee

    My mowers sit on the trailer in the elements 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
    Biggest problem will be the seat will probably crack prematurely
