used john deere purchase, what to look for?
Does anyone own a John Deere F525? I am looking at a 1998 model with 310 hours on it. I drove it (no experience with this model), it seemed to drive fine. Forward, reverse, brake, steering, all seem to work fine. The mower started right away, no smoke, and it idled and ran full out, sounded ok, oil clean on dip stick. Visually the mower looks very clean for 12 years old. all of the plastic body is in good shape, no cracks etc, mower deck looks new.
Any help would be appreciated if there are anything i should check on this model.
