Fair price on a Mower?

Just wondering what you think. I am new to the industry and have the opertunity to pick up a 36" Lesco walk behind. It is beld drive and has a bagger on the side. Does $800 sound about right? it is hard to find used stuff local around Wisconsin so i was concidering it. What do you think?
Thanks.

test drive it when you go to check it out, get him to let you mow his front yard. Run through all the gears, make sure the muffler is cold as to make sure he wasn't running it right before you get there. That's a sure sign of something being tricked up. Make sure the cut is nice and all that good stuff. Good luck.
