This batwing mower was purchased new by a local (south la) port commission and until a few weeks ago was owned by them, serviced and maintained properly, since new used to cut the levee right here close to us in South Louisiana! They recently bought a new cutter and new tractor because of age and a replacement schedule they go by, not sold because of problems or issues just updating fleet although it does have some major deck rust. This particular port commission does not have a large section of levee/ground to cut so it has been used but not used every day all day like some government agencies would use, they have one tractor and one batwing cutter which should relate to you they don't really have a lot of cutting to do, the one tractor they have also does many other task besides cutting grass! The unit was used on the levee in South LA and has some serious rust spots on the flat metal deck on both sides and mainly underneath, nothing major is rusted through like the main frame, lift arms, etc., the rust has worked its way through quite a few spots of the thinner flat metal, take a look at the photos and video please, besides the rust it has normal wear around it, scratches, dings, dents, patched spots, etc. but is in good working order, gear boxes good, hydraulics good, blades probably need sharpening but other than that ready to cut some grass! Please take a look at all photos and video, it is used, has some serious rust through the thinner metal but does not keep it from working properly and cutting grass, it is not wore out and has some life left in it just has rust issues, can patch up flat metal over time and keep cutting. The unit was just washed before the photos/video so any wet spots you may see are from it being washed/cleaned not from anything leaking! We can load on any type trailer or transport for the buyer and all photos were taken the day of the listing on August 18, 2015 and show the unit in its current condition.
