Ask for receipts on the engine. What's the price of a new one? $900 sounds good to me. Snapper's are good mowers. What kind of engine? HP?

a look at the pic shows 2 mowers on a trailer and some sort of commercial building, I would guess a commercial cutter. I would look at it first as I would be afraid your getting someone else's mistake.

Ok and i dont know much about it just what it says in the ad. So its a 15 hp commercial kohler engine. ( i know this because i showed it to a snapper dealer and they can tell)

It sounds like a good deal just the photo does not add up to me. I agree your dealer as you can tell it is not a Courage. I just have a feeling they are not telling your something due to the picture. Snapper does have a well respected walk behind mower so you might want to check it out just look it over.
