How old is it? 700 hours seems like a lot for someone only using it on 2 properties.

im not looking for a new mower, im just looking for a walk behind to use on the smaller accounts i have. 3 accounts have fenced in back yards and im lackin a few inches of getting my zrt through the gate. so im stuck with using the 21'' push mower which takes me 20 minutes in its self as a walk behind i think i can cut it down to 5 or 10 minutes.

Belt drives seem to last forever... I would say its worth a shot. You will know when you see it whether you wanna buy it or not.
