Default How much is this mower worth?

I bought it used today, hoping I got a good deal.

2001 Gravely 36" Pro 150 walk behind with sulky. Mower is in excellent shape, except for slight fading of the red paint, not to bad though. Has 336 hrs on it. Fired up with half a pull. Came with mulching kit, two extra sets of blades, Three oil filters, two air filters, and 4 new belts.

Give me your best guess. I already bought it, so it doesn't really matter, but I just want to know if i made a good buy or not.

Is it belt drive or hydro?
If its belt I would say around $700 to $800

well that is very low hours for a mower of that year. Gravely makes a pretty good product. I would guess between 1000 and 1900. Depending on whether it is a gear or hydro. Just curious what did you actually pay? and is it geared or hydro?

It is a belt drive. with tax I paid 1400. Thought I got a pretty good deal. Maybe not though. Either way, I have used it for two days and am very pleased with it's performanace.

I only wish it had a seat and two hand gears, and a 50 inch deck. Other than that it is perfect.

sounds to me like you got a pretty good deal. But like the others say you can't really tell unless you post pictures.
