Should I buy this Bolens?

I have an opportunity to purchase a 1991 GT1800 tractor with 48" deck and 54" snow blade. The tractor has 1100 hours on it and is in excellant shape. The only known problem is that the U-joint that connects the PTO shaft to the mower deck is broken. The "quick connect" collar is gone. Owner is asking $300....seems like a good deal providing I can get the U-joint fixed.

What will it take to replace/repair this U-joint? Can they still be bought?

Are there any known/common problems with this model?

What does "Duratrac" mean?

I have a GT2000, its a great tractor. The part you are looking for is for sale on ebay, it ends this sunday I think. Sams has your part as well he makes new ones.
I believe Duratrac is just marketing.
I have never heard of one being sold for so cheap usually they go for a couple of thousand dollars. Get it while you can!
