Broken Toro 421 for sale - is it worth it?

Found this on Craigslist: https://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/grd/5999513677.html

I'm on a budget and rent - when I buy a place, I'll get a really nice machine. Till then, landlord keeps the rent low as long as I shovel and I can't stand my single stage any longer. Found this Toro 421 and was wondering if it's worth buying off the guy? He says it doesn't start, which is the obvious concern. If it's a gummy carb or a spark plug, I found a great deal. If it's a cracked block or broken piston, I'm an idiot.

I'm going to look at it, but is there anything I should look for when checking this machine over? Any tests I can do on site to see if it's worth fixing up?
