    Hey all! I’m planning to start up a lawn care co. in spring ’08. My main order of business: to find a good used mower. I’m not really that picky. All I want is a Scag or ExMark, a Toro or Ferris will do, couple hundred hours tops, 20+ HP, 48” cut, hydrostat, ZTR that’s been meticulously maintained by an old retired mechanic from a NASCAR pit crew who will weep when he sells it to me for less than $3K. Does anyone here prune the tree that this mower grows on?
    Seriously though, the above requirments not withstanding, if anyone in the Hudson Valley (NY) knows of any season end sales or used equipment, I'm all ears.
    Anyway, back to the want ads.
    Thanks guys.

    Your going to be paying more than $3000.00 for a decent used mower with 200-300hrs.
