You will love that machine if you go for it. Look at those service records and see what they say if you can. Make sure there is not some reoccuring code or something. If they wont budge on the price then start getting things throw in. Forks, extended warranty, whatever you can think of. Its a numbers game, sometimes they cant do better on the price but they can lose on something else, like that used blower someone traded in or that snow plow. Ask them if they want to sell if before 2008 or if its cheaper when its even older because it will be a 2008. LOL Never be in a hurry to buy anything, it has always paid to wait for me. If you know its been there for a while, that means no one has pulled the trigger yet and they will get frustrated holding onto it soon. I have never been concerened with the year of equip just how many hours on it and the options. I wish I had 2 speed but when I ordered new they made a mistake and I took their discount to take the machine they got in rather then re order. It was a good discount at the time because of the mistake.
