    Default Rear Finish mower?

    Anyone have a TSC Countyline rear discharge finish mower? What are some of the things a guy should look for in a finish mower? I would like to buy one would even settle for used but really just dont want to spend 2'gs plus for a new one. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    I've never bought a used RFM from a private party, but I would want to see it cut...even if just 10-20 feet.
    I'd also want to pull the plug out of the gearbox to check the gear oil.
    After that, just overall condition...

    The two RFM's I did buy were both used, both Befco (good brand!!!!) Never had any problems with the 5' mower I owned for 10 years. All I did was check the gearbox oil (never had to add), change the belt once, sharpen the blades every other season and grease.
    The one I have now is a 7" mower. Only had it two weeks, so too soon to tell if it's a good one...but it's in fine shape!

    Finish mowers have belts that provide the slipping in lieu of a slip clutch. Flex hitch, adjustable in and out lift arm hookup, float hitch on the top and lower links, powder coat paint, solid tires and Gullwing tiped blades are all a plus for a grooming mower choice. Ken Sweet

    Coobie so you think Sweets mower isnt any good either?

    I have a countyline tiller which is a KK and have prob over 100hrs on and it has worked flawless but thats a tiller not a mower. I do agree that you usually get what you pay for in life but sometimes a good deal is just that. I know nothing about mowers and I usually reserch twice and buy once so any help is appreciated.

    If it comes down to having to buy a $2000+ mower then ill save enough just for that. But if a $1000-1500 will cut grass just as good and will last then maybe thats what I need.

    To be honest id rather give a dealer my money than a chain store but thats just me.
