It seems to mow well even at full speed. I like the turn radius and the fact that you can mow in reverse. A downside for me would be that it seems to use a lot of fuel, but this is the first riding mower I have owned.

We have been running this unit all summer with never a problem. The only thing I think is missing from this model that was on my old one is their is no easy to read/ see gas gage on it. The variable speed transmission is Great!
I was set out to buy a quality riding lawn mower that I would be able to use in my 1 acre lot. I looked at John Deer, Troy built, and Craftsman. For the money and quality I could not go wrong with this mower. What really completed the deal was the very tight turn radius. To the best of my knowledge, it is the tightest in its category. I also impressed with the separate key position that allows you to move in reverse as well. Overall a great mower.
I bought this riding lawn mower 3 months ago and it is still mowing like a champ. I love the automatic speed adjustment. It does a great job mowing and is easy to clean up with the water hose attachment. I also bought the bumper to go on the front to keep it from getting damaged. It protects it against dents and looks nice, also.
My 3.5 acres are very hilly and have multiple obstacles. I was without a mower for about a month or so and my grass was wet and high when I took the maiden voyage with this tractor. This thing performed way better than I expected. It did struggle a bit when the cuttings got piled up but it kept on chugging. As far as vibration is concerned I didn't notice anything that would make me even think about it. I am very pleased and can't wait for the grass to grow again!
I was happy to find a close out model at my local sears for a great price. I have been even happier to find out how tight a radius turn it can make. The mower so far has been great
Gate City, VA
I would recommend this riding mower to anyone as long as they know how to adjust the deck wheels or get someone to do it for you. It mowed excellent on hilly and level ground. It is fast and easy to use once you know what all the lever are for.
