What size deck? Sounds like a good deal to me. I'm into the older stuff that's built heavier, but for $800 with a wagon as long as it has a deck that is 48" or bigger or you will be mowing forever with 2.5 acres, 50" plus would be best. Hills in the yard or flat? If it has hills and he was using it on them, it could end up with trans problems. But hey for $800 if it lasts you 2 years while looking for something else go for it.Likely a John Deere. The current seller offered me his LA 175 with 608 hours and wagon for 800. I’m now trying to figure out if that’s a reasonable price. Any advice?
