Older Snapper ZTR vs. New Gravely?

Need your opinion on a Snapper Rider ZTR approx. 10 years old. It has a Kohler Command 14 with 540 hours. A new 48" deck put on last season, $1400?? What do you guys think? I was planning on getting a new Gravely/Arens Sport Zoom 1232 until I found this one. Thanks.

Nope, I personally stay away from older equipment. Maintenance considerations, reliability, actual ground speed, quality of cut, parts availability, etc are all factors to consider.
Something else to consider, try selling the snapper six months after you bought it. Instead of $1400, you would be lucky to get, say $750 or so.
