Does the tractor have a hour meter? If it has less than 500 hrs it should be a good deal. Have the guy take the deck off (they come off very easy, 5 min.) and check the spindles for excess play. If they move a lot the bearings probably need to be replaced. My deck has three blades, as long as you use the grease fittings on the arbors and grease them every time you sharpen the blades or change the oil the bearings will last a long time. Still have the original bearings on mine.
