Yeah looks good. Neutral ? ( Clutch blade engage? ) and rear wheel drive!!! I would buy it in a second.

But hey this looks good. I would go look and see.

Sears Riding Mower Pull Start

Although I would shoot this guy an offer and scoop up one of these.

Honda Mower 's Hrx217hxa , Hrx217vka

And this...

cool, i think i will check it out.

i can't have a rider = not enough storage space for it. and i doubt i will have a yard large enough to need one.

I'd be tempted to wait until you found your new home. That way you'll have a better idea of what you need

Uhh ohh...here it comes...everyone likes there own kind of stuff.

I've never bought a full price mower...but I've also never bought "used" (ok...maybe private party would be a better term). You just don't know how they have been taken care of.

I go to places and look for last years model, or factory/dealer repaired with a warranty, or dealer shops for machines that were never paid for and picked up. Most shops will give you a warranty on a used machine...very few private owners would.

Personally I like big rear wheel with front wheel drive, but that depends on the lawn.

sure. but if it works well on the spot. getting it home and doing some maintenance should make it last. its a gamble, sure. but isn't life.

i don't know about doing all that. i could spend weeks driving around and still come off with nothing. but thanx for the tip.
