If the macine and the ultra vac are in good and working condition I would say this is a good price. 318 hours the machine should have plenty of life left.

The mower is about 7500.00 and the ultravac is 1800.00 or 2300.00 with quick dump. (NEW)

318 hrs. aint squat!, I'd snatch that for 4500.00!!!!

Check the spindles for wear, and also check the ultra vac for damage to the veins on the fan.

I wish i could get my hands on that! Check the spindles for sure, but deffinatly a good deal. Unless he forgot to mention that it doesnt come with an engine and deck . Almost sounds to good to be true. Either its a good deal at that low of hours.

Its a good deal. Check the hydros, and blade spindles. 318 hours aint even broken in if the hour meter works!!! I would test it for at least 20 minutes and keep an eye to make sure the meter is working.
