    Well 46 hours means its close to new. But guys arent gonna pay full price when they can get a new one. Im guessing you are out about $7000 on that? Id say you could get $5500 to $5800.
    Also gotta consider if you owe anything on it. Gotta get payoff.

    I was at a local auction yesterday and they had a 19/52 RH that sold for right around $4500. It was a demo unit and probably had under 100 hrs.

    No warranty for the new owner by the way so thats effects value.

    $4500 sounds like a great deal. Seems like its worth more than that though.

    To give you an idea....

    I just sold my dixie chopper a couple weeks ago. It was a 2009 model and had only 45 hours on it, it looked great and ran great (just had dealer problems). Well I bought it for about $12,000 new and sold it for $7500. Its just like a new car, once you drive it off the lot the value drops significantly. My Dixie looked great, dang near brand new, but I only got 62% of what I paid for it back.

    Wow, a $4500 hit on a nearly new mower because of a dealer problem?

    As for the original question, figure out what a new one sells for with taxes, etc, then knock off $1500-$2000 and see if you get any bites.
