Good places to look for second hand ride on mowers are online, local classifieds, farmer’s magazines, web sites like the craiglist.org, or eBay as I have said before the good thing with eBay is that the seller has to be completely honest with their description of the used riding mower or they will have their account shut down.

Go have a look in your local lawn mower repair shop even if they don’t have any for sale they probably know someone that does. You will find that if the lawn mowerrepair specialist has got some for sale that they will be a bit more expensive than buying from a private seller, this is because they have given the second hand ride on mowers a proper service and check, so paying that bit more is a good idea in my opinion, also they will give you a year’s warranty so if there is a problem you don’t have to worry about it just take it back, most private seller once they sell something that’s it, if you have a problem with the used riding mower that’s your problem as far as they are concerned.

So I hope some of this has been of help to you and good luck in finding your second hand ride on mowers.
