It looks like it is in descent condition. 425 is a bit high for a McLane without a rollover. I think that mower retails for around 700. It is at a yard sale so they might take less if you go and especially if it's still there towards the end of the sale.

Your going to want a roller at some point and that's going to cost you around 150. I don't know your market but if there are McLanes and TruCuts listed on Craigslist fairly often I would try and be patient. Something will pop up that will be hard to pass up on.

If this one is close I'd say it's a much better deal.

I think it's the 25 inch.
Cheaper.
Honda GX engine is much better. More reliable and easier to replace/repair parts.

Obviously I cannot see the reel and bedknife which are the big things to check when buying a reel mower.

This TruCut looks descent too. But it's 700.

Mom of those have rollover though unfortunately.

I'd personally look for one with the Honda engine. Not a fan of Briggs
Fully agree. If the older Briggs has a gummed up carb it's miserable to clean(IMO). I've got 2 of them that still are not running. The Honda carb is so easy to clean. Or you can buy a new one for 12 bucks on Amazon. The replacemt carb I have looked at for that same model Briggs is 100 bucks.
