This mower looks like a residential mower so it would be around $3500 to $4000 but that's just my guess.. it could be higher a bit or lower..

Thanks for the fast reply, and yes it's residential mower i'm pretty sure as a lady on a forum has it for sale she is asking 800.00 dollars for it so i'm really assuming that's a great deal!!

That's what new ones are. I know that the price is around that. I have a commercial one and it cost me $8500 + taxes ($9760).

$800 is pretty good if you wanna get started with that but you will notice it won't help you when you are going to be making it work like a commercial one as everyday use.

If your really stuck, I'd go for it at $800 and go from there. Eventually you'll wanna get a commercial one

Yeah it will be used for part time starting out i live in a pretty small town so most work will be residential, And hopefully ill build up fast i done have 1 set of townhouses lined up for 750 a month and its 2 minutes from my house so it worked out good but eventually here is the package i want http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-60-HUSQV...#ht_7186wt_905

I think thats a RZT $2500-2700 new with warranty. I drove one before and its slow. A bit faster then a riding mower but not by much. I would say 6mph max.

I had a Cub Cadet RZT 50 for about a month, loved it but when the going gets tough it fails, the hydro pumps are not up to commercial use and they are sealed so no fixin them once they leak down and then they get hot and quit, 800 isn't bad I bought used and then sold my RZT50 for 1250.00 it was nice til I did more than 2 acres in a day with it...save your money and buy a used commercial zero turn you will thank your self over and over again if you do.

just starting out unless your a mechanic I would recommend buying local, maybe since your looking at that package look at a commercial walk. The main reason is you will have a support system if you have any problems. Also just for note they are not really that cheap on the package. Also if you piece it together you can do it with less debt and better equipment.
