have been looking for a self propelled walk behind for some time , found this on local craigs list ...toro recycler GTS self propelled 6.5 engine...says runs fine...my question is it worth the $120 asking price, no more info in the ad ,will try to contact the guy today and go look at it , ..does look like it's rear wheel drive and does look very clean, should I buy or stay away..this would be my first self propelled so I'm really unsure of which brand would be a good choice by the way I would be using this just as a trimming mower and just on rather steep banks going side to side thanks for any info

You probably don't want this machine. It's heavy and the rear wheel drive is kind of funky on side hills. My experience, anyway. Also, for trimming, with all the twisting and backing, probably something that is not self propelled would be best. Now, having said all that, it gives you a great excuse to keep buying until happy.

That Toro might only have a 3" tall cut, too. You might want up to 4" in PA.
