Check the maintenance records.

Also check to see what accessories may come with the purchase of the mill.

That's better than the first mill I tried to buy where the owner changed his mind on the 7000$ LT40 after I was through with the banking end...He still owns it today 9 mos. but still only saws for fun. Good hunting.
