    KS Grasscutter, I can take a loss but that would be like a $1000.00 loss. I would be better off using it and sucking up the size. Sorry.

    I would think $750.0 - $850.00 would be a fair price, since it has a catcher and looks pretty clean.

    If you made money with it for 1 year then it's not a loss, it's investment in inventory. Keep it and use it for back yards with small gates. Then add your bigger mower.

    Not to be a total dink here, but those retailed for $1400 brand new everywhere. Grass bag was like $80. To try and sell it for what you paid for it is never gonna happen... Figure HALF of what you paid on that sort of equipment. Somehting over 3 to 4 thousand you would have to be at least a grand under new price, otherwise most people will just rather go with new and the new warranty... Iv'e sold quite a few things I didn't end up liking over the years, and each time I take it in the rear... Just the way it goes if you don't want to keep it.

    Thanks for all the advice. I got ripped on the bagger then since I paid $180. Live and learn I guess.
