Looks like fun - I've never owned anything bigger than an SP mower - if you can see a good maintenance history on a ZTR/Rider mower at what sort of hours would you say "Nah"?

Hi Drewebb

Had to look up the specs as had not heard of these.

23hp and a 36 inch deck should really cut something.

I would think that would be a good toy to have.

Cheers

Normally i dont buy used, this will be a first if i do. But there is a cut of point (for everything) ie i wouldnt be considering this if it had 1000 hours cause what you are buying is the ''Unused'' hours left on the machine.

It is wear and tear and maintenance that matters, not hour meter hours.

 

The value in an hour meter is in scheduling regular maintenance.

 

Because they are an accessory add-on they have no history/relationship to whatever they are attached to unless you fitted it yourself and know its history.

 

 

When you are buying second hand machinery the hours may be honest but keep in mind that the

 

Hour meter may have only just met the machine it is now attached to…

I remember what I'd forgotten but can't remember why I needed to

Sadly video,s dont generally show slopes well.

 

Never used one on a slope but 10/12 foot tall spear grass no probs.
