Anyone know what a 3 year old, nice-looking, Commercial Duty X-Mark 56" 23 HP ZTR would be worth..??

1,200 hrs, and runs really well..

Thanks for any information..I have been looking for one of these and he wants $3,000..

Is that a fair price..?

Thanks..
Ron..

Looks like a Steal...
It comes with 6 good sets of replacement blades and he will get me all the filters I want "at cost"..
How well would these work on slopes, like around my lake and front slope, by the rd (30 Degree slope)???
30 Degrees is my LIMIT (on anything)..!!!!
When dry, I can mow it with a Row-Crop tractor, but when damp I need to use a mower...

Thanks, everyone..have a Wonderful Winter..!!!

Ron.

Sounds like a lot of hours for a 3 year old mower.
Was it used by the owner or hired hands. Was it well maintaned or used hard?
The commercial mowers are built better than the others, but it can still be wore out through neglect
You can buy a new Cub Cadet zero turn for about the same price and its guarnteed for three years.

Just have to be careful near pond and lake banks with zero turns. if the wheel closest to the water starts slipping and spinning, the other wheel will steer you right into the water if you aren"t paying attention and stop power to that outer wheel. I"ve pulled my neighbors zero turn out of the pond a few times. Never did any harm to it, but once both drive wheels where in the wet muck, it wouldn"t move without some help.

Exmarks are good quality machines. I worked at an Exmark dealership for a little while. They came in to the service department a lot less than the other brands we carried (Scag, Gravely, Husqvarna.)

You can still destroy a good mower, though, in 1200 hours. That's a lot on a zero turn. Has it been well maintenanced?

What engine does it have, Kohler or Kawasaki? Is it a Lazer Z?

X-Mark is one of the best mowers on the market. I would not hesitate to buy that machine if it looked and ran good. I am a cub cadet colector. I have 20 of them. I would never buy a new cub cadet.

A brand new ZTR selling for $3000 ain"t worth bringing home.

seem high to me since you can be in brand new unit with that size deck for little bit more and have 3 year warranty. everybody gets so wrapped up in the ztr mower market on who best who not,trouble is take sheet metal or plastic body off and 98% of the actual components will all be same. just seems high to me maybe if it was the 72" deck unit.

Yes, it is a Lazer Z with "HP" after the "Z"..

23 HP Kaw engine..

I bought it and I am amazed at how much Steel it is made from..!!!
I don't see anything that appears to be "worn" to any extent..except maybe the rear tires show some wear..

ExMarks are made well. I have been around nearly every zero turn out there, but ExMarks seem to be one of the best, and one of the few I would consider if I was shopping.

I certainly hope it gives you many, many hours more service!
