Strengths Powerful Engine, Comfortable, Nicely Painted, Heavier Deck (9Ga.)than most.
Weaknesses Kohler Engines seem to have poor QC before Delivery. I would have gladly paid a good bit more for a Kawasaki Engine.
Overall I like it and I treat it bad. 7 years and I have replaced belts three times, blades 4 times and starter once. I cut 3 acres of uneven Bahaia Grass Pasture. It is a rough ride but the mower does well. The tires only slip on wet grass when you try a suicide turn on an uphill or run in watery soft dirt like along the edge of my pond. The steering bushing broke once and it was made out of bronze NOT plastic. Bahaia will wear anything out fast as it is a coarse abrasive grass. Had a Deere and wore the deck out in 4 years. I am a professional Lawn/Farm equipment mechanic and this one doesn't have any problems the others don't have also. You want a good trouble free mower? Spend $13,000 on a Gravely, Exmark or some other professional mower. I repair Kubota ZD** mowers all day long. It's not a Maserati, it's a low priced Lawn Tractor.
