Just bought one at auction for under $1500.00 (no sales tax Ag-exemption). Cost from DR is aboaut $3000 plus sales tax. Unit has less than 21 hours actual usage. Can't wait to mow down the brush around here. Its high time I get the pastures back in shape - its too hilly to safely use the tractor and brush hog in some of them. Rolling the tractor would ruin a good day.
