Stay away if it has the integrated hydros, they are 1500$+ to replace. They only last for about 700 hours or so

Had a 48 walk behind Great Dane think it just had the regular Hydro's. Ran great for years. Like the small pistol grip levers.

Integrated hydros mean that the wheel motor and pump are not separate units, they are combined into one. They are what most tractors use and since their is no ability to change the hydro fluid, you could imagine the difficulties they had. My snapper pro has them now, but they have the ability to change the fluid and also have filters on them.
I'd stay away unless it had separate pumps and motors.
