New paint does wonders. Its 20 years old.

I'm 60 and still function. :laughing:

Might need a few joint replacements, fluids changed, new ticker, arteries replaced, etc... but that's less than 1/2 price of new.

I'd snatch that up in a hurry if I needed a larger machine.

Right. But add all that up and now your not 1/2 of new, add to your list a timing belt. You still have the old model 1011 engine, and a machine with close to 4,000 hours. Still may be a good deal, but not sure if you will end up that much ahead. A lot to consider.

machine - $30,000
90" rough cut mower - $6000
72" light material bucket - $1500
26" blade stump cutter - $2500

That's $40,000 new.

For $16,000 you could put in even $10,000 in repairs and be $14,000 ahead of the game.
Timing belt we can do ourselves.

Where did you see the hour and age information? Did you give them a call? :licking: :laughing:

Yes, I called Terry. Vague "everything has wear". I figured they didn't go through all that work to paint it for nothing if it was a cream puff. I would bet it looked like the loader bucket, now it looks new (I try not to fall for a pretty face). Moss, you and I are the same age. Looking forward, it would last the rest of our lives. I don't want to be chasing ghost from a 4,000 or 5,000 hour machine when I am 70 years old. There is a furniture commercial up this way that says "Quality remains long after the price is forgotten". If it ends up being a mild winter and I get the chance to travel down and IF they still have it, I would like to look it over. But I am not going to rush into it.

20 years ago, I would bet that is in the ballpark of what it cost when it was new (which is a good thing). Price sheet from 2018 list the machine as $26k, up 4k in 2 years.
