    would you guys buy it? great shape for the age and hours, its a 2003 with 2100 hours on it, has 48in ghs deck and kubota diesel everything works as it should and comes with that ramp used for geting onto curbs... has all new belts also, so what do yall think? would you get it? im not in need of a walker however if i had one i could use it, I already have a peco vac on one of my zero turns so i pretty much can bag whatever i need but these things are much more compact and would be ideal on those smaller yards where im using a walk behind right now. plus it really just sounds like a great deal to me im thinking if it turns out that it doesnt help me out i could at least sell it for what i got in it.

    If the engine is solid and hours original it's a ok deal?
    If that engine needs replacing you looking at around 3k
    So a good deal can become a bad deal. Things to look for play at drive shaft.
    Look at hydro oil if it looks like it over flows, or milky color.look for leaks at PTO
    Inspect blower impeller.... And if you have pictures we really can help you on your decision.:waving:

    There is a team of great techs on this site. I'm sure they will shine in.:waving:
