    if nothing major is wrong with it that seems like a great deal. Id def drive an hour and atleast take a look at it and run it. That would come in handy if you have to deal with gates or small lawns.

    I have a standard chain link walk through door, and my 36 fits perfect. In your situation, when you have fenced yards, ya can't go wrong.

    What size motor, and does it have a Velke or Sulky? It looks like it in the pic. I know my 2 wheel Velke was $300, so if it has one, you're lookin at $200 for the mower and $300 for the Velke.

    For an hours drive it would be worth it to go look like everyone said as long as theres no major damage to it go for it.

    $500.00 seems like it's a steal, or stolen???
