Thats the lawn mower I have now, It's not a bad mower, mine is getting old got it used and have had it for 4 or 5 years. There some problems with it the hand bars broke a few times. Ever year we have had to throw a couple of hurdrend of dollars to fix it, and it hard to get parts for it. While it is running it works great! I am now looking to sell that one and get a new mower! Thanks for the reply

The billy goat and the Sutech(what I run for now) are about the same in quality and price point.

Pick any of the name brands and you will be just fine but your paying for better quality when you move from the billy goat to say an emark or toro.

I got a guy who wants to sale me a used 36inch, 12.5 HP Kawasaki engine commercial walk behind mower. It is a GS35 john deere mower for 1100 bucks. Anyone have idea if this is a good mower? Is this a good deal?

I attach a couple of pictures of a John deere walk mow that a guy trying to 1100. If you know anything about this lawn mower let me know, and if it is a good deal? he said it's a GS35 and There is a number on the tank of M124488. So if anyone knows anything about these mowers let me know?

Looks like a pretty clean mower. My neighbor has one, and used it for 6 years for commercial mowing, and still has it today for mowing around his house. It won't sell it for anything, he loves it. I own a 36" Eagle Star which is formerly Yazoo Kees, and I love that one. It has the 12.5 HP Kawasaki on it as well, which everyone seems to love. My mower is about 12 years old, but the old Kawasaki runs great. I think you'd be real happy with this mower. The only way it could get better is to get a Hydro Drive mower. But, if this is ur first commercial walk behind, you'll love it.
