This modern mower was not designed the way it was portrayed to me in the mower shop. Therefore the above faults occured. I have recently sold the mower and have gone through another 3 mowers searching for one that meets all my demands and doesn't cost upwards of $10000. Welll so far i havent found any. Now i use an old rover approx 1988model 5 speed gearbox driven, which has a better braking system that my 2004model and is alot easier to change belts and carry out general servicing.
2004model 18 hp heel toe operated rover 30inch cut. Easy to go...
I like this mower.My dad gave it to me.mower is 10 years old and still going strong, just need to learn how to be able to adjust the clutch. everything else is good.
Good cutting, easy for a woman to use.
It is hard to do any work on them due to small space, no manual to tell you how to adjust the clutch, etc.
I just luv em, good ozzie worler for our conditions, mine just says gimmie more when I have finished our 1/2 acre block.
So good to ride, cuts well, tuff machines, I just bought another one 7 years old 11.5 HP, I couldn't kill the 5 HP it just keeps going, slowly but does a fantastic job. Great brand, old workhorses!
