I need a mower!

I need another mower for my fairly new lawn biz, the thing is I only have about 700 bucks left in the budget... I know its not much but it is what it is. Any suggestions?

Friend of mine just got a great dane 34" stand on with 168 hours for $900 on craigslist, he was asking $1500.. Got 7 extra belts and 4 sets of blades with it too. He brought it by on the way home for me to make sure wasn't anything wrong with it, it was perfect....lol

What do you guys think about this? I don't think it's commercial grade but Iit may be better than a store bought mower. Ideas? http://kansascity.craigslist.org/grd/2791511513.html

I actually had one of those years ago. Ran the tar out of it. Was a great mower for what it was. It sat in my shed for a couple more years and I sold it for a few hundred bucks. Mine looked a lot rougher when I sold it. That one is ultra clean for its age.
