Strengths It is 10 years old now!Probably the best piece of machinery I've ever owned.Use Schafers Molydenum grease;lighter wt. on spindles&heavier on chassis.Shell Rotella oil.I have 500 hrs.Original belt on mower,and looks like new.I love that 3 cyl. super smooth engine.I use Schaffers lighter wt, grease in my mower gearbox.
Weaknesses Who! Me? No way!Ten years&no sign of belt wear! OH! I do have one.Before I replaced the front wheel bearings,I removed the old ones;drilled thru the wheel,tapped the hole,and placed a grease fitting.Then I removed the inner seal of each bearing. About a tube of grease later,grease started showing at outer bearing.Grease between mowings.Schafers LT WT on mower spindles and through bearing;Hvy Wt all others.I would have worn out several $3000 "junk" mowers,spent many hours fixing them. I feel like the G1900 is part of me..
Overall No complaints!Do they still make the G1900? I don't like the looks of those MTD looking rear ends I saw on a Kubota mower.Kubota. don't try to live on a name; it will catch up with you! Leave MTD alone with the JUNK.
