    Newbie Post - I have a neighbor advertising this:

    2001- 725 grasshopper zero turn radius lawnmower
    25 hp kubota water cooled engine 72" mower deck
    commerical grade lawn mower good condition
    $6250.00 obo.

    Is this a good price??

    What should I look at to evaluate it??

    It started fine and I drove it around and seemed pretty tight. The deck was a little knicked up but seemed to run ok...

    Any advice appreciated!!

    That actually seems cheap! In my area, a used one isn't much less than a new one!

    That sounds like a good price to me.

    With only 200 hours, it should be in very good condition. I would guess that even $7000 would be a good asking price. Most likely it has the G2 transmission. Original cost was probably in the $10,500 - $11,000 range. Check the tires, they should have at least 50% tread with that amount of hours.

    It is a g2 and saw the stickers. The tires look decent but the deck is pretty worn, The hour meter is not easy to rig, is it??

    Decisions, decisions...

    It may not be the original deck. If the deck is that worn you can just get another deck at the price of this unit! Oh, and hour meters usually either work or they don't.
