    Hi Guys,
    Been going through all the history and appreciate everyone's options.
    (even though some people get pissed about repeat posts...)

    Looking at a 06 Kubota ZD25 60" with 2100 hrs for commercial areas, mostly 3 - 5 acre range. Asking price was $5900, but down to $5200. The machine looks spotless, meaning either well taken care of, or a really good clean up job.

    Other than tranny being sluggish, anything else I should be looking for?
    Also, what do you guys think about the price and how many hours can I get out of this machine, if taken care of?

    Thanks

    Personally I think that's way too much money for a mower with more then 2000hrs on it. I think you could do better.

    Hey OM,
    Thanks for the input... what should this mower with 2100 hrs on it be worth?

    I'm not sure being you're in Canada. I'd guess it's worth 4k in the states maybe less. 2100hrs is a good amount for a mower.

    Just thought that it being a kubota diesel, should last quite a bit longer... but maybe I am incorrect

    we had a fleet of those, dont buy it.

    they machine and engine are great, the trannys have issues and will fail, especially if you do slopes.

    the newer models are great after 08 i think

    Thanks guys... I will steer clear of this one.
    Anyone have a suggestion for a used 52 - 54" Diesel model for commercial cuts with a $6000 budget?
