Not worth $2k

3 years does a lot to a piece of equipment.

$700 - $1000 only.

... 2k is what you spend looking for a used vehicle, not a 3 year old lawn mower.

We also don't know how he defines, "runs great".... if you kick it a couple of times it'll start right up!

Yes, as in lower in the front. Lowering the back just makes no sense at all.

If you go to check it out look under it from the rear. There is a pulley that goes to the transmission. Give it a good shake. If it wobbles the transmission is going to need repaired soon. Either the input shaft is worn or the bearings are shot. Either way having a backup transmission is a good idea for this mower. I was lucky enough that my old mower that I blew up had the exact same transmission and I was able to swap it out before the new transmission failed for the second time (it wasn't fixed properly by the local yokels).

I have found what I truly want, a Toro Grandstand 40". It normally runs new for $7400. I found a dealer that had one he needed to get off his floor plan before he starts paying interest on it for $5950. Only 2 hrs are on this machine. What do you think?
