Solid, newer GT
. The deck is thinner than the older ones, but if washed out, it'll last a long time.
As mentioned, they do like to be level for a good cut.
Now for the things you should be aware of. Not afraid of, just aware.
When you can get a model number, look up the tranny and make sure it doesn't have the splined input pulley.
They are NLA and it's best to catch issues before they fail. If it does have the splined tranny pulley, there is a fairly simple fix.
Tip on that engine... and the dash should have this tag... let it idle for a full minute before shutdown to avoid backfire. It has something to do with the muffler.
BTW Backfires will cause headgasket issues too. Pretty easy to get to the head bolts, might be good to check torque just to be safe.
Also, change the fuel filter soon. Probably hasn't been done in a while and they will act very oddly. Loss of power, sounds like spark loss was mine.
If the clip holding the fuel line up and away from the tranny breaks, the tranny can heat the line and cause vapor lock.
I assume it's a Hydro Gear. Sears says never change the fluid. Hydro Gear says you should. 90% It'll have a filter too. Make sure it's a suck, not pressure filter. Napa has them.
It'll serve you well as a daily user. It's not a 20 yr older WH
, but it's a decent enough unit for the era it was made.
