Advice - Used Simplicity Conquest

I am looking to replace my current Simplicity Express 14.5 Gear tractor. I see a Conquest local to me. 50" deck 18Hp engine. 750 hours for $1595. From the pictures it appears to be in good cosmetic shape. I have asked the seller what year it is but have not gotten a response yet. There are no other attachments. It's just the tractor.

The site does not show a Simplicity Conquest with 18HP and a 50" deck. They show a 18HP model with a 44" deck and then a 23 hp, 25hp, and 27hp with a 50" Deck.

I had a couple questions.

1) Is it possible the seller had replaced the 44" deck with a 50" one? If so, is 18HP enough for the longer blades? (I'm guessing both the 44" and the 50" each have 3 blades, but they would be longer on the 50")

2) is $1595 a decent price?

3) What would be some things to check on this tractor? Common problems or failures?
