    I have a 2006 John Deere 997.

    60" 7 iron II.

    Suspension seat.

    The unit has 62 hours on it.

    It is perfect in every way.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    What is the best way to sell a mower?

    Well you can probably knock about $800 off what you paid for it would be my guess. That sounds fair. Depreciation is a biotch :cry:

    He'll have to sacrifice more than $800.00. Machines this nice are "USED" when he signs the papers - just like autos, they depreciate big time, no matter how fine they are.:usflag:

    You will only get $1500.00 for it.

    Since I'm a nice guy, I'll give you $1600.00 j/k

    Why are you selling?

    I think $800-$1000 off sticker is fair if its really that good condition.

    I am building a house and need to get it finished. I will have to operate with less mower unfortunately. I am willing to entertain any fair offer. Come on Deere guys.

    What kind of engine? I would deduct about $750-$1200. Why not list it in the marketplace on LS.........

    Why not use it to make you more money???? I could see making 5g's extra with it rather than selling a mower and taking a big loss on it. JMO.
