Very crude machines. I still have an old Gravely Pro-Master of this type, and it was state of the art compared to the design and engineering of the old Scag version. If you can get a good enough deal on it, yes, these machines WILL cut alot of grass. The thing is though, is without it running, there is no way of telling what you're getting. You can't tell if the motor has bad bearings, the hydros aren't all wore out or needing a new pump or wheel motor, or anything else. This machine would be a big enough risk if it WAS running, let alone sitting nonfunctional.
