I'm going to look at a 1026R this evening that I'd like to purchase. It will be my first SCUT, upgrading from a 425. It is a 2013 with 230 hours, 54D mower with mulching kit, H120 loader, and 53" bucket. Selling price is $11,900 which seems to be the reasonable going rate based on scouring the used market within 150 miles of here.
So what kind of things should I be looking at, looking for, testing, poking, sniffing, and tasting when checking the machine over? I am very eager to be getting this new
toytool, so I don't want to blindly overlook important things out of excitement.
