Hello all, new guy here...

A friend of mine is trying to sell me his Simplicity 4212. He says it's roughly 10 years old and it comes with a mower deck and snowblower attachment. He said he's asking $500 or best offer...what do you guys think?

I'd say 20-30 years old.Get a more heavy duty GT.
They haven't made the 4200 series since the early 90's (I'm pretty sure). You can do alot better for that kinda money. I would get anything smaller than the 6200 series. The 6200 can handle 48" deck, tiller, blower etc. I honesty look back and wonder if i should have rebuild a 7000 series or larger. my decision to rebuild the 6200 was based on yard size and work load. but the 7000 and up demand a higher dollar amount and wouldn't have cost that much more to rebuild.
drew, I have 1/2 acre to mow, A drive to snow blow and a garden to till. I have no complains on the tractors ablity to do any of these.

Just to give you and idea I sold a 4211 two years age for 300. It was a hydro, with a 36" deck. If I'm not mistaken the 4212 also has a 36 deck. The snow blower hitch on the 4212 will fit a 6200 series.

So, maybe, purchase at 350. or 400. then keep the blower, for a larger tractor. and sell the 4212
