Have had this Mower for 6 years

This is the best tractor mower I have ever had, and I have had a few. Yes, I keep the oil, and filters changed, and keep the front end greased. I had to buy 2 tires for the front of it, but that's OK because I have always trash the others before they needed tires. If you want a real good mower buy one of these. I know the price is a little hefty, but I can now say it was worth it for me. Excellent Mower.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good Mower with needs.

The mower has plenty of power and mows well. The mower runs reasonably quite and is comfortable to ride and mow with. The transmission is a bit jerky at times, but not really a problem. The foot pedal is not conducive to comfort (I cut mine down and reattached with bolts to make it more comfortable). The mower leaves a small uncut area in the middle about 1 inch wide, more noticeable when turning or unlevel ground. The deck was poorly adjusted from the store, but was an easy fix. The tires were overpressured from the store by about ten pounds. The toolless blade change worked well but had to clean out the holding tabs to get them to release so the cover would come off easily. After all the fixes and leveling the deck I have no complaints about the mower, it seems to be a good buy for the money.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Riding Lawn Mower

Nice mower with good turning radius. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because of the forward peddle. Is not user friendly if you have small feet.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
