Should I buy this McLane reel mower

Hi guys. I normally post over on the lawn care forum but had a question. I live in the Raleigh, NC area and have about a 4500 sq. ft yard with bermuda grass. I am a lawn care enthusiast and have been cutting my grass with a rotary mower. I can't get nearly as low as I would like so I have been thinking about investing in a manual reel mower for next season. I happened to be looking around and saw this lawn mower on craigslist. I don't know much about power reel mowers but from everything I've heard, this sounds like a steal. What do you all think? Just as an FYI my front yard is relatively flat but my back yard has a hill. Thanks in advance for the feedback.

I think the first thing I would do is locate someone in your area that sharpens these. By me, the sharp service start around $80 and can cost a hundred or two more by the time you are ship shape.
