Looking at Deere 717

I have an opportunity to buy a JD 717, 48" with Kawasaki 19hp, '06 or '07, with 300 hours from an individual for $2200. I have no idea if that's reasonable or not. It's been used on homeowners property only by original buyer. It looks OK as far as paint, tires, belts, spindles, pulleys, no leaks, clean fluids, etc. It needs blades and one of the anti-scalp wheels is wore out. I ran it for about 30 minutes with no issues. Is $2200 a decent price? Thanks

Should have jumped on that, I bought the same machine around the same year with 200 hrs from a homeowner for $3300. Came with an accelerator catcher and an extra set of blades. I've put 150 hours on it so far and love it, dont regret the purchase at all
