Strengths This thing mows grass!! It doesn't matter if you go 1mph or wide open(8-10mph?) it does an excellent job at cutting the grass. It throws the clippings and spreads them out from the side discharge deck. The 7 iron is the best deck I have ever seen. Superb handling and control. I mow several lawns commercially, and use this and a 757.
Weaknesses The deck will scab on hills and while turning but that is common of most mid deck zero turns. Little to no control when going down steep hills, the wheels slide and you end up wherever it takes you. Possibly also common on other zero turns. Parts are expensive compared to other brands. I have had some engine problems with the valve seat lifting causing it to bend the push rod. I fixed it myself for $100 saving me at least $900 if not more from not taking to dealer.
Overall Overall it is a good machine. The handling and maneuverability are better than other mowers that I have used. The price tag is probably higher than most machines also. This mower is not great on side hills, steep hills, and really rough ground but it performs excellent on flat ground at any grass length.
