Unfortunately I read the reviews on this BEFORE I bought it. Got it delivered to me yesterday afternoon. Read the reviews in the morning before I got home to ride it. The reviews about the vibrations (when the blades are engaged) and the tractor being under-powered are dead on. The lack of speed didn't bother me as much as the vibrations. I've been using a 17 year old tractor which seemed like driving a Ferrari compared to this. Can't speak to the reliability of the tractor as I have only used it once. With all that said...it DID do a great job on the lawn but again I would agree with the negative reviews regarding the fact that this particular deck has NO business being on this tractor. I would say driving the tractor without the blades engaged, the ride is as smooth as silk (albeit a little under-powered). The deck seems like it is great as well, just too much power for this particular tractor.
and a 6" turn radius made short work of my 2 acre lawn that usually took all week to mow. Uneven ground is no problem for this floating deck tractor and later I can add a snow plow for the winter. I mowed twice on one tank of gas and went as fast as I pleased. The blades did not show any sign of slowing down.
I have only used it twice but after realizing you need to use a higher setting than I thought, it's fine. Mows well and has enough power to get up the hills. Used it in a field that had pretty high grass, and although it labored a little, it got the job done.
This is the worst purchase I have ever made,(I am easy going and easy to please). It shook my teeth out. It sounded like a machine gun while mowing. MTD let you down on this one Sears. I have never returned a piece of machinery in my life but I called Sears and they picked it up today for a return. Sears has been wonderful through the process but the mower is really bad! Would I buy Sears again?, YES. But I will my homework a little better next time. (READ REVIWES)
My lawn looks great after cutting with my new Craftsman riding mower. It looks like I had it professionally cut. The Craftsman riding mower is easy to start and the turning radius is fantastic.
It cuts around fences ,trees and garden plots as well as my walk behind power lawn mower in 1/3 the time.
