Do not buy any turn tight mower

One of my front wheels has come off the shaft 3 times. Do not buy a turn tight mower, it is an awful design the front wheels will lock up when you "turn tight". I had a sears tech come to my house the first time it came off and he told me I had too much grass to cut for these mowers. Nope I just bought the wrong brand of mower. If you do buy these make sure you get and keep the extended warranty.
