Two Etesia pro 46s bought secondhand in one lot last month and being serviced by myself at the moment for the 2011 season. (2009 briggs and 2005 honda)
Good way to check out capabilities before any new model purchased.
Use Rover and JD JX80 at the moment.
Sounds like the one I had that was stolen!
Only kidding :-) Sure it will pay for its self many times over. You can certainly get some bargins if you are quick.

Just bought a ME53B mulcher, only paid £120 for it, I know it starts and goes, gotta have a good look over it but at the mo it feels like the bargain of the century!
nice one neil 120 quid is a bargin and a half
if you want me to do a history check on it just get the serial number and i can tell you which dealer area its from age it was built first owner etc also im sure i have put the parts lists and op book for it on the main forum discussion etesia files (not the groupe one)
Thanks guys, it was just by chance that i found it. I was being nosey at how much a piece of equipment a client had given me was worth when i saw an advert in the friday-ads for a mulching mower. I needed one and was willing to pay up to £500 for one so this seemed too good to be true, i rang the guy and asked a few questions, he told me it was an etesia but i didnt get my hopes up thinking he'd made a mistake. Went down there last week and it was an etesia, started and seemed to go ok, i dont think i could give him the money quick enough!!
I'll be using it to cut a small field which ive got the contract for once a month (£150) so if it does me proud once its paid for itself!
Neil, Sounds a bargin and a great ROI - That is the way to do it.
