    I just bought a 2001 last Wednesday with the same engine and a 72" deck. 1700 hours and I paid $3600 delivered to my door. I'm real happy with it so far. I'm only using it on my 2 acre yard but it cut my mowing time down to 40 minutes without even trying! Here's a link to some pictures of my machine. Post some of yours when you get the chance. I'd like to see it.

    Also, I didn't get an engine manual with mine. If anyone knows where I can get one online please let me know.

    Thanks!

    If you go online to the Scag site you can order one. I did for my 2001 T/T 52/25 and they sent it to me in Australia. Bloody bonza service mate.

    I sold mine last year for the same price and it had 650 hours. You got a good deal on a great mower.

    1700 HRS???? :dizzy:
    Holly smoke! I thought rule of thumb is never buy any motor over 750 hrs under its belt. Oh well, if you enjoy, then we are all happy.

    Who's rule of thumb?? So what should happen to all the mowers with over 750 hours on them? Send them to the scap yard to be melted down?

    Granted, if I was making a living with the mower I would not have risked buying a used one with 1700 hours on it. But for residential use it should last me for years to come.

    $5500 was a pretty good deal for a machine that size with 700 hrs. on it.
