Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whitmore Lake Man this bad boy isn’t no joke, bought the mulching kit with this unit because a bagger would have to be ordered. Keep the bagger, this unit is a BAD BOY!!! Yard looks raked after mowing!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower I used to have commercial lawn business so I'm a little spoiled on using good equipment. Three things I always evaluate a mower by 1) Engine- This one has a Kolher 25 HP so check 2) Welded heavy deck-this one is thick steel not the stamped out thin stuff so check 3) Transmissions- this one has decent ones the best you can buy for a mower in this class. I have 25 hours on mine so far and it has been great. It is great for homeowner and seems sturdy enough to use in a business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Bad Boy is doing the job I have enjoyed this mower so far. I like the uniform cutting it has provided so far. I can only hope i get a lot of years from this piece of equipment.
Date published: 2019-09-21
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great mower, not so great factory blades More is awesome, but on 1st cut it would leave pieces of grass, grass I was cutting wasn't high at all as I've kept it maintained. Another thing was my fuel gauge stopped during the 2nd week of use so I have no idea on how much fuel I have unless I take the fuel cap off. After checking the blades i notice that after 4 hrs of use i already have to change out the blades. I was told that these factory blades were the best out there and lasted a long time but i guess that's if you take the blades off when you 1st buy it and put a razor sharp edge on them which I shouldn't have to before 1st cut. I'm not happy about the blade situation but I love the mower and i will experiment with different blades to see what performs best.

I see you can tow up to 300 pounds, but nowhere in the manual does it say what to use to attach what you are towing to the mower. There are two holes in the back. What would one use to attach a wagon to those holes? 

Asked by: JusticeSR
The mowers have optional hitch kits.
