    What soze and brand of engine is on it? Mainly as long as it runs and its not a total rusted POS, it will probablyt be worth buying even if just to have as a back-up machine. JMO

    More details would be helpful though!

    well its worth looking at, buy it if its in nice shape if it has alot of rust or is just an un-taken care of mower forget it.

    chances are its a good deal, even with it being belt driven, 1000 for a 4 year old, non commercially used mower is pretty good. just check it over for any problems before you buy, and ask for dealer paperwork, possible service records, etc.
