I am pleased so far with the mower. It has plenty of power for a small engine. We have 3 acres to maintain so our grass gets very high at times. On average our grass gets cut when it is five or more inches tall. We have a riding mower with the same sized engine but this seems to have way more torque. It is very fast and does not hesitate in the tall grass even when the grass is slightly wet. The mower is easy to learn to operate and to maintain. I am a quadriplegic (paralyzed from my shoulders down) so my wife is currently the operator. She is very pleased. She is cutting her mower time by at least one third of the time. For example, it would take about an hour and a half per acre (remember, we cut when the grass is high) but now she is cutting the same in about an hour or less. She was able to operate it fairly easily and that is saying a lot because her tech skills are somewhat limited. It is a nice looking ZTR. Easy access to everything. It is not very much bigger than a comparable riding mower. There are many safety features to prevent mayhem. The controls are ideally located. The blades turns extremely fast and strong. My intent in purchasing this ZTR mower is to convert it to a radio controlled mower so that I can operate it like a RC vehicle. The hydrostatic transmissions makes this a lot easier than the conventional riding mower. I have not yet assembled it but will be doing the modifications soon. The neat thing is that nothing that is factory has to be modified. The two control arms are perfect for this application. You will be pleased with mower and if it holds up like the quality suggest I believe it will last at least 10 years. zoom! Zoom!
