Go take if for a test drive and see. The only problem that I am aware of is the jerky hydros. I had an 830 and deere eventually replaced my motors after their band aid fixes didn't satisfy me. You will immediately know if the unit you are looking at has issues that haven't been fixed.
Just so you know, Deere discounted the new mowers significantly. I paid $7500 for mine new. The sitcker was around 12. The one you are looking at, assuming good condition should go between 3500-4000
