That's a great deal. Someone near you may say you overpaid and offer to take it off your hands for what you have in it, just to help you out.

Cute little bugger, can't wait to see the video of it mowing.

Nice score! Some assembly required...but that's just fine considering the unbeatable low, low price of free!
