How many hours are on it?
What's the retail price for it new?
What kind of shape is it in?
Will you be able to use that wide of a mower on your properties?

I'd hate to see you buy such a large mower and then end up servicing properties that had 3 ft wide gates.

A lot of times we see on here the point of not buying equipment until you need it. So you should ask yourself do you need this piece of equipment yet?

but i have only spend the 800$ this month on ads,etc with noting to so for it

What kind of advertising have you done for that $800?

I i have made some new fliers for discounted prices on snow removal.
but it does come with a large risk for me, i going to sell house contracts that state no matter how many snow storms we get i will be paid 200$ for this season. it does not include Salting,sanding,or icemelt.

Have you checked out to find how many snow storms you have had per season for the last, say 10 years?

That could help give you an idea how many average storms you might deal with.

This is an article that may help you out.
