Comment:
Reliability is 1st class. Kid with a new toy factor is high and sustained. You realize that you're riding a work horse on the very first cutting. the tire can dig in on downhill turns, but if you slow down it is virtually eliminated. The operational and maintenance curve is small, read your manual! We have a lot of trees and planter beds in our yard--360 degree those puppies, rather than square cut them with a typical lawn tractor and trimmer, The time saved is amazing, but I wish that it took a little longer!

Comment:
3/4 acre hilly lawn which takes about 40 minutes to mow.<br />It has been absolutely trouble free in terms of starting, mulching, changing mowing heights, and clean out.<br /><br />My only problem is when mowing down hill and needing to turn - especially if grass is wet. The mower tends to slide and require slowing down to accomplish the turn. However, as I have many irregular flower beds to navigate, this seems to be the correct tool for the job.
