Strengths 17.5 Horse power is more than needed to mow 2.5 acres which is mostly hill. Smooth transaxle. The tractor has multiple lubrication points that help the unit last.
Weaknesses At the price point of this tractor I can not see one weakness.
Overall Over all I would recomend this tractor to anyone looking for quality and low price. I have well over 300 hours and have not had any of the issues some have stated. I do preform the preventative maint., Oil changes, lubricating the fittings and adjusting of the belts. I also do wash the tractor and clean the bottom of the mower deck. All I have had to do is replace the battery which is expected after 4 years at a cost of 29.00. I do have a spindle on the deck starting to make some noise. I have ordered a new one for 49.99. Moral of the story take care of your stuff and it will last. Use it every week dont change oil or maintain the deck and you have problems even with a 10,000.00 dollar unit. I expect to get many more years of service from this unit. My last 110 was over 30 years old and still worked great. soldit to a collector. Who knows mabye this one to in another 25 years.
