Just a standard 4 speed...dang...oh well.

As far as I can tell, it needs the starter rebuilt and some new fronts. Then I can really assess it. The guy said it may need brakes too but I can't afford to buy one that doesn't need work. However, I can afford a fixer upper like this. The brush hog is a 5 ft and seems to be in decent order.
I've tried to do some research to determine things I should look for specifically that would steer me away from it. I value the advice from the forum and anything you throw my way is always welcome.
It should be a good mower and maybe something I could use a backboard on shouldn't it?

I know I'm in the minority here but having had 2 of those 4 speeds still say it will do fine and the price is cheap - again, if it will run and mow as is or with just a little work.
No, it's not an 8 speed with live power.
But it is a good, reliable old machine that will do a lot of useful work yet. It will always be worth at least what you paid for it even without the weights and mower.
Heck, a lot of guys would be happy to pay that much for an 8N on a package deal like that. That is much better than an N.
How about some photos of the rest of the tractor?

Once you've driven an 8-speed, I don't know how you could tolerate a 4. It would drive me nuts.
