I have been looking for a walk behind or a grand stand mower but I do not want to have to drop the amount of money into a Grandstand. I want a 36-40". I have found this one on Craigslist. He said he would take 2200 without the trailer and I asked what the best he could do and he said make an offer so what would you offer?

Do you suggest me finding a hydro over gear? I like the grandstand because the deck can be lifted quickly and it have the closest thing to a floating deck.

Just my opinion, if this is going to be your primary mower I personally would not get a belt drive. If it's going to be a second mower or a back-up then go for it.

Looks like a great unit and I think $2,200 would be a good deal. Offer $2k and see what he says. Those Turbo Force decks really cut good.

Good luck!!

That was my second choice when I bought my w/b. I was between a 32 and a 36, I went with the 32 which was a good decision for backyards. I think 2700 is fair where I live at. How many hours tho that is the question. Belt isnt that bad but you just have to keep adjusting the belt. Its a good starter mower. However, my next one will be hydro.

I use that same mower (except mine has the newest 15hp kawasaki) on all of my lawns. It leaves a great cut and is very easy to use and productive with the velke. I got a 2010 model with low hours shipped from FL to MD fro $2100 after everything, so I think you may be able to get him a little lower.
