Thumbs up Should I buy it or should I not?

Just wondering If you guys thought this was a good deal?

Exmark Turf tracer 52inch deck walk behind
no hour meter, due to the fact that it was the model right before they made hour meters on them.
About 9 years old, but only used two years than used as a backup

Starts first pull, hydros sound great.
At full speed it can go 40 MPH.
Comes with bagger and two wheel Velky.

The guy is firm at $1,775

I appreciate your feedback,
thanks

40 MPH?!? Seriously though the price sounds fair. Are the spindles tight, belts good, hoses good, controls sloppy? Fine tooth comb examination of anything used is mandatory.

It seriously goes 40mph
I might need to change one of the belts, due to it being a little loose but everthing else seems good.
