also you can buy the rebuild kits still so having a rebuildable motor is a plus.

outside of that the transmission is the standard type you would find on most commercial gear driven machines and that has value as well.

plus i never said i would pay the full 450.00 asking price as well as outside of the motor and trans the rest of the machine would be scrap as far as i am concerned.

Deep breaths, man. Deeeeeep breaths. Innnn. And outttt. Ahh.

12.5 is a bit underpowered for a 36" but if it would fit on my old Toro I'd put it on there as a field mower to take care of the rocky lawns and not care about busting up my good mower. The transmission is worth a few bucks. Maybe $75 if it's not worn and the input shaft is steady.

assuming a good engine and trans ,its worth no more than $250.00 ,but much less if you dont have something to use the parts on .

I'm not sure if I want it that bad or not.
but finding good or even bad used commercial mowers around these parts is like pulling hens teeth, What dose show up they want and seem to get $2000.00 to $4000.00 We have no stocking dealers here everything has to be ordered in from Ontario or Quebec.

"worth it" depends on how it runs and how much it will cost to replace everything that's missing.
I was thinking of tiring a rope to the front spindles and then around my neck to act as a cantilever to hold the front end up.
That or hooking the wife up to the front with a rope and she could walk in front and hold it up and remove debris as we go.

Ducke, there are numerous dealers in Halifax with commercial ZTR's although the majority would be new, guys run them into the ground then buy new. Deere in Halifax had a few as a large lawn care business out my way went under, they had at least 8 commercial ZTR's
