New guy here and new to lawn tractors.

I would like to know what you all think of this deal.
He wants $900 for the package.
Judging by the picture, the tractor looks complete. Paint worn in spots and shows it's age. Seat cracked and worn. Tires look used but serviceable. I have only made 1st contact with the seller so right now this is everything I know.


This is the seller's description.

If the thing runs good (rebuilt motor) and doesn't have any other damage besides the cosmetic he describes this thing sounds like a heck of a machine for the money! Especially with all the extras included. Go look at this one fast and try it on for size and see if it can work for what you need it for.. (or I'm takin a road trip out there and snagging it! -- J/K):thThumbsU
