I’d say it’s a pretty good deal and a nice looking machine. I got mine for 150 but the paint was hit, it was filled with dirt and pitch and needed to be converted to single phase. After buying a new motor, going threw a couple wire wheeles, paint and a new switch I have about 350 total invested so in the end yours was 100 cheaper and ALOT less work. Kinda sucks about the cabinet but doesn’t effect operation. Plus you could build a nice one out of wood or swoop up the spare that was offered.

I love the lettering on the cutter gaurd that comes with your model. Mine was a series newer with the plan gaurd so I recreated the look of yours with decal letters and some clear coat over top.

Nice find and enjoy.
