Good little mower
Bought this mower for my 2 acre lawn with rolling hills. The 19hp engine is a bit loud when in a bind. It cuts well but does have frame flex. If you are looking for a manicured lawn, this mower isn't for you. But if your looking to throw some grass and have the neighbors wondering what you just started up this is for you. Its not the fancy city boy mower. This mower is simple, easy to work on, and a bit jumpy when letting out on the clutch, "it will pull a wheelie" if you let out on it quick. For a country boy who has owned many of the top brands out there this mower fits the budget. The ************* is why I jumped onto the buy. Overall a good mower, a bit loud when lugged, a stout 19hp engine that is stronger than the 22hp I had before, uses a bit more fuel than other mowers, cuts well, and very easy to steer.

Do Not Buy!!!!!!!!!!
This unit has a design flaw in the gear selector linkage. After 3 hours use, the linkage broke and I had to go and buy parts to repair so I could finish cutting my grass. This was half way into the second cutting of my grass. It took me all day to do a 2 hour job and also cost me extra money to make a temporary repair that lasted just long enough for me to finish cutting my grass and then broke again.

Craftsman 42" Garden Tractor 917.20380

Had not been able to cut my grass for over three weeks due to old (12 years)Craftsman LTD1000 having lost compression and not starting. After wasting money on a carb and gaskets and many hours I bought this product. I mowed our acre yard quickly even with the six inch high growth. Was not bagging but still amazed at the power and speed of this low cost tractor. Did not bog down once and didn't seem to break a sweat even in the high 90 degree heat. The clutch action is abrupt but I learned to deal with the short engagement section of the travel and it became much easier and smoother.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
