This review is based upon 5 hours of mowing time. I have steep slopes, hills, uneven and bumpy ground and pond with some saturated lawn totaling about 2 acres of cutting area. Setup Issues: When received needed to grease, seemed to be very little to none. Wire to the seat was routed in front of the seat bracket and got pinched when the set was tilted forward. There is a long list of ?Cons? because I deem them important to know about regardless of how minor, so don?t take it as I am picking on the mower, so far I love the mower. Pros: good traction on slopes/hills, good quality cut, turning abilities, comfortable, replaced a craftsman 917.288580, YT4500, 06/2011 with this unit and runs circles around it including cut height; getting stuck on steep slopes; cut quality Cons: Muffler is close to freewheel levers, back of mower (chassis) is hot, when you are near an obstacle and the inner drive wheel loses traction, the mower brings you towards the obstacle (could be something dangerous like a drop off) - the nature of the beast, When moving the steering bars out of the rest position, the mower could start moving (no brakes available including the parking brake), oil filter location lends itself to oil spillage on the unit, headlight bulb fell out but within the lens cover, complete start code lost memory for the initial few starts, but then is now remembering the code for the past 20 starts, easily loses traction on saturated ground (prior tractor did a lot better in this scenario), I have a big belly (190 lbs all belly) and the steering bars touch me when in reverse, so make sure this is not an issue for your frame, I needed to attach the negative lead of the battery and found that only a box/open-end wrench would fit (adjustable would not do it) to tighten the battery lead bolt, learning curve from a typical steering wheel tractor - do a lot of practice in a more open area so it becomes more natural before you get into the tighter spots Overall, all the "Cons" are avoidable as issues if you keep them in mind and know how to avoid them.

I have had this mower for less than two months and its a great mower, I have used it about 7 or 8 times and the Deck Belt broke. I contacted Sears and they informed me that the belts and blades were not covered by any warranty, so it's up to me to buy a $62.00 belt. I'm not happy.
This unit uses a new Kohler engine design, which I'm hoping will last as well as my other 14 year old Kohler Pro which is still running strong. Controls are simple, but what else do you need for a rugged ZT? I like the multi function hour meter. Cuts well with medium throttle at a fast clip. Has cut down my mow time by half doing 5 acres compared to my 50" garden tractor.
