I've had this mower for 8 years now. I haven't had any problems and has not been maintained like I should have. Only issues/ maintenance have been: replaced 3 pullies, new blades 4 times, 2 oil changes. Been used on mowing 2 acres every week or so, minus a couple months in winter. Been used and abused and still works well.
Received the lawn mower. Notice the quality of the deck was inferior. Then engine began to miss badly by the end of first hour. At the second mowing, engine is still missing and now motor oil is leaking. Rem it is brand new. Poor overall.
More tractor than I need. I have only put about 5 hours on this tractor so I cant speak for the longevity but in those hours I have mowed, and pulled around utility carts and utility trailers without any issues. Very powerful engine and cuts are excellent. I would like the option to turn off the headlights but there may be a way for that I haven't figured out yet. I love the electronic deck engager.
Powerful and reliable mows and trailers over our property without issue. We have about 4 acres that we mow and trailer supplies around on our 750-Pound Max Utility Tow Behind Dump Cart. no worries here.
This mower has been a headache ever since I got it last June 2018! I had to replace the cylinode, the head light were continuously blowing; one of my tires keeps loosing air; and when I went to mow the other day , I notice I had a electrical line from my headlights was hanging down and the mower had run over it!! Sad that a little more pride couldn't have been taking when putting this thing together!! I would mot recommend this to anyone!!
the mower was delivered by a trucking co. during rain and had to be unloaded on a busy highway, delivered without ignition key and owners manual, I have tried unsuccessfully to get a manual, keep getting overseas operator...
If you only need this to cut grass it's a great tractor. Almost 3 acres once a week all summer long. It also works well with a light dump trailer. However, I live in the north east and this was a replacement tractor. This is supposed to accept snow thrower 24837 using mounting kit 68030. I have both of those items but the mounting kit doesn't mount to the tractor. If you follow the snow thrower instructions for mounting on tractors with part numbers starting with 247 (which this one does) the holes don't line up at all. So if you don't need to mount a snow thrower this is a great tractor. Maybe I was just unlucky.
