    I'm looking at a 2015 54" Raptor SD with a 23 HP Kawasaki motor. It's got 161 hrs on it and the guy says i't in excellent condition and that it has just been serviced. He wants $2800.00 for it. I'm a pretty good haggler for thing I know about but I really don't know what I'm haggling for when it comes to mowers like this. I've read good things about the mower here so I guess it's a good machine. This is what it looks like...
    What are your thoughts? THANKS!!!!

    I should have mentioned it's for my property and since we live in an area that has vacation property I could be mowing 1 or 2 of my neighbors lawns from time to time.

    I mean, that seems like a decent deal. It's not a commercial machine by most of our standards, but it will serve you well. The paint seems a little rough for 160 hours... But it's fine I'm sure.

    I have a 60" raptor sd with the 26hp kohler we bought from lowe's back in April of 2017. 3 year extended warranty and a bagger. . Mower has 82 hours on it right now. 2 months later I decided to start my lawn business and bought a commercial mower. Have used it on 2 of my small properties to bag over this season. All of the hours are from those 2 and my personal property. Would take $3500 for the mower and bagger. The warranty alone was an extra $300 I think. Was going to wait till spring and sell it.
