    What do you think a 3 year old Wright Standard (52") would be worth. The unit was a trade at our local dealer and the dealer completely rebuild the machine. New tires / hoses / bearings / re-paint / new labels / shoot etc. I believe the engine is a 25 kawi with 2000 hours on it.

    Option 2:
    New Wright Stander X (52") - $7800

    The machine would be my main unit.

    That's a lot of hrs and unless he replaced that engine as well I would be Leary of it as my main mower.

    Get the new one. 2000 hrs. is the beginning of the end.

    It's probably worth about $1500 to $2500. A large-frame Stander that works well rarely sells for under $1500; $2500 is pushing the top end for a 2000 hour Stander, but if the mower was refurbish, they might get that for it.

    If you mow full time, and this will be your main mower, it probably will not last very long; but if you are part time, have a second mower, and can do your own maintenance, it might be worth considering.
