Tips On Buying A Second Hand Ride On Mower

April 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 165

For many homeowners, a ride on mower is a necessity for keeping the lawns of their expansive property in check but, as these types of lawnmower can be quite expensive; this is not something that they can afford. It is for this reason that there are plenty of second hand mowers on the market - and it isn't long before a willing buyer snaps them up.

Use these tips for finding a used ride on mower, as there are probably more places to look then you originally thought:

  • Online auctions - Websites, such as eBay, are always a good place to start looking for a ride on mower for sale, as new items are added and sold every day. Search as locally or distant as you like, keeping in mind that you will have to go and pick the mower up.
  • Classifieds - Check out the classifieds, as well as their accompanying websites, as many people will post advertisements for their mowers here. The upside of this is that you will be able to view the mower before putting in an offer, ensuring it is of good quality.
  • Forums - By visiting online discussion forums that are about home improvements or gardening equipment, you may come across threads where people are trying to sell their old ride on. You are also able to ask for advice from people who have bought a second hand mower in the past.

Once you have come across some second hand ride on mowers that you are interested in buying, you will need to ensure that you take a look at the machine (if you can). Use these tips to know what to ask of a seller:

  • Ask the seller whether the mower comes with any guarantees in terms of satisfaction or quality.
  • Ask whether any parts have been replaced, being sure to find out what exactly these parts are. It is also a good idea to ask how much the seller spent on these parts, as this will give you a good idea in case of any future repairs.
  • Ask the seller why they want to sell the mower.
  • Ask how often the mower needs to be serviced and whether there is anywhere nearby that offers this service.
  • Ask the seller how much the mower costs to run (generally, how much petrol the mower requires in order to mow the lawn).

By following the above tips, any homeowner should be able to find a used mower that is affordably and of a high, lasting quality. Just because you cannot afford a brand new ride on mower does not mean that you should be relegated to struggling with a push mower on a large property.
