    Hello. I just sold my SWZT 36 and I have found a 2018 Vride 2 for sale. It’s has about 120 hours on it and he’s firm price of $5750. Was wondering if that was a good deal? Also it’s a 1.5hours away.

    What size deck and which motor?

    I bought my 2014 V-ride (52 inch) for about 4k and it was 5 hours away with similar hours to yours. Mine has the Kawi 730 motor that many say is a ticking time bomb, but it has been perfect since I've had it. Spmetimes I think it runs better than my 31 Kawi

    Pretty sure Kawasaki has gotten the bugs worked out of the 730.

    What's retail? Keep in mind Scag warranty does not transfer. Unless you need a mower asap you might wait until Feb/Mar when they run their sales.

    My gut tells me the price is too high.

    Think that's about right. Commercial mowers are way to expensive now days. But they know will still come for new ones when the old ones break down. It's a win win for them.:laugh:
