    THis guy I know has a landscape supply mower it ok shape. The engine starts up right away, but i'm guessing its a good 10 years old. The only problem with is it smokes on hills. What do you think is wrong with it? Should I buy it for $300?

    What's smoking? The belts (cheap fix) or the engine (expensive relative to what you're buying)?
