Allright I posted this a week or so ago and I got the guy down to $3000 for this machine. The machine looks kind of beat up and I don't know how well it was maintained. The guy said he changed the oil every 100 hours and he also had the hydro fluid changed. One of the scalp wheel mounts is bent and I think it is missing the front right scalp wheel. I can't tell if one is supposed to be there or not. Also, the left trim side of the deck has a curled under slice in the metal which I fear could cause future cracking. This mower has the 25 HP Kohler on it which I have heard bad things about. I have not tryed to cut with it yet, but I will before buying. I really don't know I have gotten mixed views on it. Any ideas on what I should really inspect before buying?
