Strengths Great cut, good horse power. Easy maintnence on most of the tractor. Foot operated hydrostat is a must when in tight places.
Weaknesses Does not start without pulling the choke, even after the engine is warm. My particular tractor is very hard to steer. I have greased the spindle eccessivly and still have found it to be very hard to steer. Also the front axles have to be greased which I have done in eccess of what they should be, but I still have an annoying squeak the entire time I run the machine. The front axles have got so hot the plastic center caps have both meltted and have fallen off. Now the cotter key and washer are exposed all of the time. Not very many weak spots but the ones I have noticed are significant.
Overall Great buy I beleive. If I could get the current problems solved I would be very pleased with the mower.
