Have Owned for SIX WEEKS now

Loved it right away. Super comfortable. Me: 6'-0" @ 255 lbs. The Hydro-Static transmission is a must if you are mowing on slopes. Six degree turn tight is amazing. Buy a bumper for it, I got the dual-tube, goes on pretty easy. I live on very challenging and somewhat sloping five acres of Ponderosa Pines, oaks, cedars, manzanita, granite rocks, fallen branches with pine cones everywhere. Read the manual! I've think I've come close to taking it to it limits mowing in thick grass and weeds over rocky soil conditions and for towing the cart when hauling wood, rocks, yard refuse or chainsaw equipment on my sloping lot - no problem. Bent blades are super easy to replace. I also got the Poly Cart, 12.5 cub ft, swing / rotating dump feature - though I just detach the cart, lift and dump it by hand. Nicely balanced. I also bought a 2" tow ball for it so to move my log-splitter around the property. After six weeks, I can honestly say that I am VERY happy with it. I bought it at a Sears Home Center and got the online price, plus the very helpful walk-through from a Sears associate. Get one, then read the manual. I am very, very happy with my purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
