Awesome mower! Has cut my mowing time almost in half and I mow 6-8 acres, lots of obstacles including trees and my wife's many gardens. Low profile allows me to mow under low hanging branches. Very responsive controls with little movement to make turns. Have to be careful because of power of machine, can be easy to scrape turf with huge rear tires, especially going around obstacles when ground is soft from rain. But getting better at that. Very pleased with performance overall.
Pros: Durable, Features, Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, Reliable, High Quality

I have only cut my lawn once since and have enjoyed cutting my lawn again in two years since my old mower died. The mower has plenty of power and cuts great, my old mower the directional controls were sloppy compared to this one and will take a few cuts to get use to.

Great Mower
This is probably the best mower you can buy for the price. My property is on a hill so I was looking for the best pumps I could find and still spend less than $5k. I found it in this mower.

The frame is also solid, and the mower is fast. Give this mower a look before looking at any other entry-level commercial mowers. You will not be disappointed.
Pros: Durable, Price, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Great Mower But Horrible On Hills
Had the mower for 6ish months now. All around great machine on flats and gentle slopes. I mow a small ditch side of driveway and its the worst mower I've had. It'll spin and slide no matter what you try to do. If you don't have banks or hill sides it'll be a great mower. Price was OK.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Fast, Reliable

Beware - Husky
I mowed my 2 1/2 acres with a Grasshopper ZTR for twelve years. What a great mower. It finally got long in the tooth so I traded it in for the latest and greatest commercial grade Husquvarna. WHAT A PIECE OF CRAP!!! After two hours of mowing the engine through a rod. I returned to the dealer (Devuall Equipment - Shawnee, Oklahoma) who did stand up and have the motor replaced (of course I had to arrange transportation). When I got it home and mowed two more hours the 172" drive belt... more
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability, Expensive
