Guys,
I have the chance to buy a used Exmark Lazer 18hp Kohler with Ultravac bagging system with 653hrs 48inch deck. Would you guys pay $4500.00 for the mower and vac, or is this too much money to spend. Is this considered high hrs, with good maintenance records. Was this a good year, anything to look out for? Is the 18hp Kohler a decent engine, only used a 17hp kaw before on my walk behind. Thanks, mark

I think that it is a fair price. I paid 3800 for a 99 model ZHP with 200 hrs on last May. Because you have the bagger included that makes it a fair deal. I would take the serial # and go to the Exmark forum to get the manifacture date though. Excellent machine. I loaned mines to a friend a coule of days ago and I can't wait to get it back today. I now have 325 hrs and the only problems I have had were a seat cushion, solenoid, idler pully and 2 ea pump belts. Great Machine! Only draw back is I wish I had the 20hp, its a little more powerful. ;)

Thanks for all of the replies. Sounds like I might have to go for it. Need to get a few more accounts to justify it. mark

I bought a used hp with the 18 Kohler last summer. I was worried about the engine size, but it has worked out great. Even with the mulch kit on the 18 does well with the 48" deck.
