Comment:
I've used this mower for 3 years for rental property. Changed the oil only once so far, have never had to add any oil either! Mow 1.25 acres weekly all mowing season (Tennessee). Finally, this year, the cut is leaving streaks. Time for new blades and some routine maintenance, change oil, filters, etc. Easy to use. Pleasure to ride.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

The original seat was ok, but I Felt it could have been better, so I put a more comfortable high back seat on mine.<br />This mower is used to mow my 1.24 acre property<br />I love the fact that it starts up with no problem and the zero turn is great.
