I want to come to the experts and see the opinions from those experienced. There is a QT-16 for sale in my area (50 miles radius) with a mower deck and snowthrower. Color isn't factory but is supposedly rust free. Runs well but struggles a little on some steep hills by according to the current owner. Air breather is missing, front PTO belts need replaced. Makeshift PTO clutch cable release is rigged up. Mower deck looks cared for. Snow thrower could use some cleaning and paint.
What problems should I be aware of with this model of unit? Parts cost and availability?
Any help will be appreciated.
