    I'm going to look at a used BCS 2 wheel tractor Monday. Does anybody have any tips for judging the condition of used gas equipment? The unit in question has a 14 hp Briggs on it. No idea on the hours. Thanks.

    Just look the unit over very good and be sure it is in good shape and runs good. When you look at something you can usually tell if its been taken care of or not. Also talk them down on the price as low as they will go if you decide to try to buy it.
