Has cost more to repair and service than it did to buy.

published

Does ok on open flat lawn, totally useless in tight spaces as well as on undulations and rises.

Lately it has been breaking down every second use and is almost impossible to repair myself. It stalls mowing back over lawn cuttings. Absolute rubbish product.

Biggest buggbear is the lack of maneuverability and inability to just reverse without having to disengage the blades.

Already ordered a replacement (from a different dealer) and will be selling this ASAP, making sure the purchaser knows not to use it on anything other than smooth, flat, unobstructed lawns.

Purchased in March 2017 for $2,500.00.

Bad design. A money suck!

published

Bad design. Mower belt keeps popping out & is impossible to put it back in place without professional tools. Seat is too slippery and throws you off on turns.Problems from day one.

Purchased in October 2016 at Mortons machinery for $3,200.00.

Great mower Great value

published

Great mower, the hydro on the handle is great no foot cramping just like a cruise control, very good finish on the lawn. Blades are cheap. That engine has awsome power! and who can beat 5 year warranty. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a reasonably priced mower.

Mate, don't go lower than no.2 on the cutting deck height, the belt comes off. Also put a bit of anti slip mat on your seat, else get ready to slide off on turns.
