Scag Tire Cub 800 hrs $2500. Good buy?

Hey guys, Happy New year!

I was looking to buy a ZTR and ran across a Scag Tire Cub 48 24 hp Briggs with 800 hrs. I talked the guy down to $2,500 Cash. The mower seemed like it was in great shape. The only thing he said was wrong was the starter... It's sometimes flimsy..
Anyway, should I buy it? I'm not rich by any means. Every dollar for me counts because I work hard for my money and dont want to waste anything.

Secondly, I already have a 48 Hydro John Deere with floating deck and sulky.. Will the ZTR big a significant upgrade over the walk behind? What are some advantages and disadvantages?
I was thinking of getting the Scag and having my JD as a back up or sell it in the spring... Any input?
