Opinions Walker MDGHS buy????

Looking at buying this walker its got around 1200 hours, positive is its a diesel.
Guy is asking $4,500 but a little negotiable so may come down a little. What do you guys think Ive never had a walker so I don't know what they are worth or even if its a good machine?

MD or MDD? We purchased an MD and it was a Kubota gas, still a great mower but loves the fuel. What year is it?

If it is a diesel make sure the glow plugs work effectively, make sure there is no knocking after the mower is started. Also check belts and pullies for excessive wear. Most of all check ALL fluids before you do anything.

We paid 6 for an '04 with 700 hours. 4500 isn't a bad deal, just make sure you try out the mower, make sure everything is tight and ready to mow grass.

It sounds like a great deal to me also. If that diesel was taken care of it should last longer than the mower itself. I would buy it.
