what to look for in a used mower

I have decided to upgrade my riding mower. I have found a ex-mark lazer Z. I haven't seen it yet but it is used. I need some help on what to look for in a quality used mower. I'm open to all opinions and sugestions. Also send me any questions you would ask the owner about the mower.

I just bought 2 Ferris walk behinds and some of the thinks I asked the owner was, How many hours were on the machines?, What did he use them for(commercial/residential)?, What did he do and how often, maintinence wise to the mowers(oil/filter changes, Grease)?, Were there any problems with the engine?, What type of break downs did he have?.

A little late but hope it helps.
