    Looks pretty rough even for $7500.00. Rust always scares me from a future maintenance standpoint.

    Not really worried about the looks. Anyone else?

    I would run away. The drive motors are more likely ready to go out. Those are not cheap to replace. But man those Mt52's can really get work done. I have one with 100 hours, baby is brand new with a trencher and a tiller, interested?
