    I've been looking to purchase a used Commercial 21". Local shops seem high, and only offer a 90 day Guarantee. Looking on Craigslist, it seems Used commercials come up every so often. I'm planning on getting Toro, or Honda.

    What should I look for before buying used. What signs should flag that I should walk away from a mower. Natuarllly I'll be armed with the value of the Mower before making an offer.

    Thanks again, for all your posts. For a Newbie getting into the Biz this site is Heaven.

    How easy does it start? How does it sound when it is running? How is the cutting ability?

    If it is self propelled, check and make sure the drive system is working properlly.
