61" Scag WB...good deal or not?

    I just bought a used 61" Scag WB from someone and wanted to know if I got a good deal or not. Its a hydro w/fixed deck, came with a velke, and also he threw in the dual wheel kit for it. He said the mower itself is about a '97 or '98 model but the engine is only two years old w/ less than 200 hours on it. He said it was either a 16 or 18 hp engine, I think it was a Vanguard or something like that. I haven't really had a chance to do anything with it just because I want to do a full tune up on it and give everything a good once over before I start using it on a regular basis. I gave him $1500 for the setup. Good deal or not?

    It's an okay deal. It's somewhat underpowered and will probably scalp being that big of a fixed deck.
