ned help with used ztr

Ok guys Im goiing to go and look at a used 2003 exmark with only 29 hours on it. What should i look for when looking at used mowers. For instance can the hour meter be reset to read false mower useage. Any help would be greatly apreciated. Its a 23kaw 52inch lazer z.

A 2003 with 29 hours will not need anything to look at. It would be almost impossible to hurt it. Plus it still carries the warrenty.
The meter could not be reset, but I guess someone could unplug it.

The hour meter can easily be disconnected like Hoss said. Exmark warranties are not transferable. A mower with only 23 hours on it should look like it is brandnew. The tires should still have all of the little casting tips on them. The paint should still be fairly intact on the left hand side of the mower deck and underneath too. There should be no signs of any leaks, either hydro or engine. Just in general it should look like it is brandnew.
