Used Badboy 5000zt, any good?

Hi, Looking for a ZTR for a while. I need to mow about 4-6 acres/week. My budget is limited to approx $3,000. Now I've come across (craigslist) a used Badboy 5000ZT 2010 with 180 hours for approx. $3,000.

Would it be better to buy a young Semi professional (Briggs Pro engine, 3100Hydro-gear drive, 7-gauge deck) like the Badboy, or should I go for a $3,000 new Toro, Dixon, or likewise? Your advise is appreciated.

Nearest Badboy dealer is 40 miles out, but I can do regular maintenance myself, so that should not be a problem.

Any specifics I need to pay attention to when visiting the guy that's trying to sell the Badboy? Any specific 'weak' points for the Badboy?

Ps. I'm new to this forum, but already learned a lot from reading other posts!
