Great Tractor
Starts right up out of the packing crate. Runs smooth and lots of power The height adjustments are a lot easier to use and there are more to choose from. They have separated the forward and reverse. direction pedals. The only draw back I have found is the height adjustment lever is a little to long and catches your pants or leg when you get off that side of the tractor.

Transmission GRINDING in Reverse
One week old with less than 8 hours and transmission makes bad grinding noise in reverse. Also, it is SO difficult to make it goes into reverse. I must use my hand to "grab the forward pedal and pull it backward while the foot is pressing on the reverse pedal"

Would not purchase another one!

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!

What a Beast!

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

*** DO NOT BUY***

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****

Only Used Once but Wow!

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

48" Turn Tight Fast Riding Mower

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 .

I would recommend this product to a friend.

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.
