Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
reviews on the web look good.

One question I would have is why are they selling?

I might call and ask him. Anything else I should ask besides why he's selling it?

I would then check it out and see how the mower looks.

Lightbulb

Probably not much to go wrong with it in 10 hours use (if that's accurate).

Check:

Spindles - Look for looseness and too much free play. do blades engage smoothly?
All pivot points
Engine - knocking, pinging, etc. when you go to see it, request he not start it beforehand so you can start it cold.
Drive system - excessive heat? how's the tracking?


Good luck:

Keith
