I bought this mower a couple of months ago and have mowed the yard with it about 5 times. It gives a nice even cut, has nice power, and has a decent turning radius. It has, however, the roughest ride I have ever experienced with a riding mower. I actually got off and checked to see that the seat had springs. It does, but they don't do anything. Every little imperfection in the lawn is transfered to my rear end with a jolt. I can mow only for an hour before I have to rest from the hard bouncing and bumping. Also don't like the little gas window indicator. You have to try really hard to see the gas level and sometimes it's impossible. I just fill it up every couple of hours of run time. Other than these two complaints, it's a satisfactory mower. Loses a whole star because of the lack of ride comfort.
