    It has 400 hrs. fuel injected for $4,795... Is that a good deal?? It also has a stand.

    I'd say $4400-$4600 would be a better deal and thats if it has been well maintained.

    If the mower has been well maintained that is a great price. You could get your Toro dealer to check on any warranty claims on the unit and the servicing dealer will have all the service records. Properly maintained the EFI engine will last longer than most of the components on the mower.

    Look under the deck and make sure the blade tips line up evenly. This will tell you if the deck has been bent. Grab the ends of each blade and check for any vertical movement. If the bearings in tapered roller bearing spindles are bad the cost of replacement is much higher than permanently lubed ball bearings.
