According to this there was a 42" front blade and maybe a tiller, which means it was probably built pretty rugged. vertical shaft not the best but not a deal breaker imo
Looking at this pic it has 12" rear wheels and 5-bolt hubs which is a good sign as far as a rugged transaxle for going up and down big hills, also wheel weights/chains are easy to find and can probably handle them
According to this ad it has power steering although who knows what the guy really knows, although he has a sense of humor
You think, but I just moved in and can't afford the $10,000 machine. Yes, you can, for $2200.
you asked about if it worth the asking price but didn't say what it was, or where you live. or how many hours on it. Some places cost more than others but if it runs and cuts good, charges the battery, deck not rusted out with under 1000 hours it's probably worth 6-800. Maybe more if it actually has power steering and you can find parts for it somewhere. usually on the newer ones the deck spindles wear out pretty quick, and steering/front end components
Although looking at the op's pic it doesn't say H after the model #, the hydro lever is on the back fender, which doesn't show in the more rugged-looking pics i found online, and can't tell if the rear wheels are 12" or not. maybe the non-h model is different so my comments may not be relevant, who knows, good luck
