John Deere HD45 Walkbehind?

I posted regarding this the other day, but got little response, but I also had the model number incorrect. Dealer took this in on trade, 14 horse, electric start, 36 inch deck, with only 8. 5 hours. I think he said it was a 2000 model. Apparently the owner bought it, and then never used it.

Anyone experienced with this machine? Likes, dislikes? I'd be buying this as a mower to use only on few properties. They want $1,400 for it.

I have a john deere 36 walk behind about the year 2000, It is also belt drive and I love the cut, almost always clean cut with no real need to ever double cut unless grass is very long to mulch it in. I paid 1,200 for mine last year, I think you should only pay 1,000 for it personally even if it has 8.5 hours sounds to good to be true if you ask me.
