I apologize in advance if there is a thread on it already, I searched but didn’t come up with what I was looking for.. Im going to look at a 36inch Hydro walk behind today, just wondering if there is a general list of things I should keep my eye out for when giving it a good look-over. I currently have ZERO experience with hydro walk behind mowers so Im not sure of some of the trouble spots and things to really look out for when checking out a used unit.. Its 4 yrs old and only has about 400 hrs and look immaculate in the pictures. Brand is a MTD Pro. I know its not one of the major brands, but the guy is asking $1800 with a bagger and velke. The reviews on it seem to be pretty good, it was about $5000 new. Guy says he is VERY motivated to sell, Im hoping to get it for closer to $1200… A little background/what Ill be using it for: Im going to be starting a part time landscaping business and hope to eventually transition into it being full time. Some of you guys may recall my thread about purchasing a business, well I decided not to go that route and instead have decided to make a slow transition over the next 2 years and acquire equipment/accounts gradually without taking out any debt to start up. This machine will eventually be used just to get into narrow gates and as a back-up machine, but for the 1st year or so while I save up for a ZTR it will be my main machine. Thanks in advance!
