    I just bought a 3-4 year old Ransome 48" W.B. at our local equipment dealer. Runs great , new stuff, oil/filter, belts,spindles,
    brakes, fuel filter,air filters,. So ,check out your local guys. They may be able to help you later with new equipment at a bargain.
    P.S. I use E-bay to search for Lawn mowers and commercial mowers to get an idea of how much thing are going for. Then go online to different manufacturers and sometimes they quote prices.

    Good Luck

    Check with your dealer for trade-ins. Also at the end of season check with dealer to see if a local LCO is going out of business and is looking to sell their equipment.
