I would really like to have one of those, if it was in decent condition, but a close inspection of the picture of the Snapper makes it very evident that it has a fresh coat of paint, and not a very good one at that. I really get suspicious when I see a GT that looks like it's just been dipped in a can of paint. If the owner doesn't do any better than that on a paint job, it makes me wonder about the mechanical upkeep, or lack thereof. I'd rather find one that's used, but not abused, and in good mechanical condition. Maybe that one is OK, but you'd think that someone posting either of those for sale would offer LOTS of pictures and a better description of both.

The Massey appears to have the same indications.

The seller has a good feedback score, so who knows?

That's still a good deal at the going bid. The rear pto & 3pt sell for that much or more by themselves. But the sorry paint jobs actually take off from their worth.

Agreed.... I'd buy either of those for the current bid of $480.96, even if they were painted pink!
