Hey guys,

I've been on the hunt for a greens mower for a while now here Portland Oregon. I found one but want to see what you guys think its worth what the seller is wanting.

Greensmaster 1000 unknown year, no transport wheels but trailer. Engine runs good. Reel is rusty though.... he wont budge from $500, is that a good price?

Does it start and run smoothly
Can you turn the reel by hand
Does the reel engage when the mower is started
Does the mower move freely when you engage the right lever on the console
Check the reel and drum for any movement which would indicate worn bearings
From the pictures it looks like a clean unit, $500 does not seem out of line to me, I would just go over some of the things listed above before you hand over your money.

It looks real clean and well taken care of. If it runs good I would say yes. It's not super old because it has the the clicker bed knife adjustment nuts and the round muffler. The reel looks like it has lots of life left. Any reel will rust up with no use.
