    They are about $1600 new so if it is in good shape and will fit your mower perfectly then I would say it is a decent deal.

    The parts get expensive if it is not for your exact mower. The discharge chute alone is almost $200.

    My mistake. For some reason when I think trac vac I always think about walkbehinds (model 450 I think). I guess it may be an even better deal that I originally alluded to.
