    From a craigslist ad,
    "model 718 grasshopper lawn mower, front deck, 18 horse koler engine, 52 inch deck with new blades,, we bought new in 1995 , has been used at our house not commercially,
    we have done what ever it takes to keep up the lawn mower in good condition, we dont need to sell , we can use for another 10 years probably ,
    good tires, and ready to go, pics are when its clean,, we are still using so it may not be quit as clean,, runs good and works like it should
    local delivery available if needed"

    The asking price is $2500 and looks like its in great condition for its age. I don't know what the hours are.

    I'm planning on running by tomorrow and checking it out, is there anything I should be looking out for that could possibly be needing replaced at this age? I mow commercially part time and this will be my first real commercial mower if I get it.

    Thanks, Matt
