Steiner 325

Hi, I am new to Commercial grasscutting and have done residentials for about 10 years. I am looking at buying two Zero Turn mowers and asked a dealer that didn't sell commercial mowers if he could recommend a dealer that did. He said that they did have one in their lower area because they took a risk in getting into bigger mower sales and it didn't work out. The mower looks good and he is selling it for cost. It is a Steiner 325 and I cannot find it on the Steinerturf website so I believe it has been discountinued. Does anyone know much about this mower and is $7500 US a decent price for one?

Thanks,

Jon

I love them, as the ones I have are the tractors, and I can change attachments, as the job dictates. right now, one has a blade, and one has a snowblower on it. I do contract work for the region, and they hold up well. I have not seen the zero turn, 325, but it looks good. I just wonder why they discontinued them :confused:

If you decide to not take this, maybe you could P-M me the dealer, as I would like to look at it too :) Thanks !!

That mower was Steiners 1 big mistake. Its not made any more that I know of, my dealer warned me about it when it was in production. Buy any other Steiner and you have a machine that will do pretty much anything you need

Thanks for the information. Do you know why exactly? I have heard nothing but good things about Steiner and can't afford to spend to much on new equipment and it looks good and seems to be a good deal. Could I call your dealer?

No I don't remember why he said they were junk. And I have Steiners so I think there awsome machines Dealers "Mid Ohio Gravely" in Mansfield Ohio
Ask for Sam he's the owner and been in business for 50 yrs so he'll tell you the truth. Pm tomorrow and I'll look up his # if you can't google it up

Just to be clear, the ztr pictured and being discussed does not have a real steiner deck. Its actually an old Bunton mower that textron call a steiner just so they would have a z unit. Its nothing like a real steiner at all. And for what its worth, 7500 is a terrible price, likely not even close to cost.
