Check the overall condition of the tractor, make sure it starts and runs well (one plus is if the seller doesn't start it just before you get there.... check to see if the engine is warm/hot). Will the engine idle at low RPM? Does it run smoothly through the full range of the throttle? See if the spindles on the mower spin freely with no play in the bearings. Check the engine oil. Another thing I like to note is the general surroundings of the seller's place.... does it look like he/she takes care of the place? If not, I bet the tractor hasn't been cared for, either. Make sure the tractor drives in all gears and/or both directions. Use your best judgement....

Listing has expired, other than that looks like a great deal.
