Replaced my cub cadet with this one, it is fast, powerful, looks nice, love the tight turn radius, and cuts very well. I don't have the grinding in the transmission like some of the other reviews and I have several hours on it now, some of that in 90+ degrees. I don't like the hood not latching mentioned in a prior comment, if you hit a hole or something the hood will pop up and usually pushes out the right side panel because it rests on them. Overall, I really like the mower though and would recommend it.
Easy start and close turn tight plus lots of umph make this a wonderful tractor. My ********** neighbors have checked it out and can't believe how great it operates. Red vs. Green in our neighborhood! Lots of fun.
this riding lawnmower is just what I WAS LOOKING for to cut the grass at my cottage up north. we have property at a lake that has a small inclines and trees to cut around in the summer. In the fall we have a lot of leaves to pick up and it was getting to be a bigger job than I wanted to do all the time. Too much time spent working and not enough time enjoying our place. with the bagger and the cart my time was cut down working and the job was more enjoyable to do. I look forward to cutting the yard now. aLSO NO MORE TIME spent fixing the mower before I COULD EVEN START mowing. The ability to get close to trees when cutting was the grass was a big bonus. I love my new riding lawnmower.
There are several issues with this unit that makes it a non-desirable mower. First, I am always running out of gas because with the design of the fuel window, it is so small, dark and hidden under the seat you cannot see the fuel level. Therefore almost without fail, every couple of mows I end up running out of fuel far away from my house and having to go walk back to get the gas can to add fuel so I can finish. Secondly, the reverse pedal is so small and very hard to depress that it kind of wipes out the tight turn feature of going around obstacles because you almost have to use your foot and smash the pedal down to get it to go in reverse. I wish I had not waited past the 30 days to mow more than once and realize the poor design quality of this mower or I certainly would have returned it!
This mower is awesome. Opting for the three smaller blades as opposed to the two bigger ones generates a lot of torque, and I'm powering through some tall grass. The motor just purrs too. Compared to my old 11hp Craftsman, this 22hp VTwin is actually quieter! The only reason she didn't get 5*s is because when I got it home it wouldn't start. There was a fault in a safety circuit under the seat, and she wouldn't turn over. Once I swapped it out for a new one, I cut my mowing time down by almost half over my old JD112. The 6" Turn Radius is awesome. Before this mower, I was convinced I was going the buy a zero turn. The other nice thing is the size. I'm 6'2" 230lbs, and I am comfortable on this beast. Recommended!

I bought this mower new in April 2014. I have had it replaced 3 times and am on my 4th mower. The rear-end and transmission are bad. It grinds when going into reverse. SEARS refuses to address the real problem that the mower Model is defective. *** DO NOT BUY****
I've only used it once so I cannot say how it will hold up but Wow, it's a blast. Contrary to what others have said it seems quite easy to control at slow speeds but when you want to go fast, it flies. I see no down side yet. Blows away my old Husky in every respect. The turning is awesome. My teenage daughter loves it too; like driving a go cart.
This mower can cut grass at speeds normally restricted for Commercial mowers. It can turn with a 6" radius allowing the mower to trim up to garden edges or to mow around elevated flower beds. The automatic transmission allows for foot control of direction and speed, giving the user easy control of the speed and direction of the mower .
Yes it does go faster than most mowers in forward which is nice but is just a little to slow in reverse. The mower makes a horrible grinding sound while in reverse which makes me think the transmission will not last very long. They say it is covered under the 2 year warranty ??? Going forward or from reverse to forward takes a lite touch on the pedal or you will be throwing back and forth. Same problem when you let off the pedal to stop, Wham! brakes on right know. Only 7 hours on mower as of this review and do not have much faith in this Sears / Husqvarna mower for durability.
Good tractor really flies got my lawn down in half the time. Only problem parking brake is broken won't engage right when I got it home and didn't even use it yet. Repair man coming this Sat. hope everything goes well.
