First Time Ever Ordering Something Like A Mower Over Internet!
We had been looking around our town mower after mower and getting more confused, hearing this is good that is good, don't buy that! I hated it! So when I checked your site out and saw that I could compare any machines I wanted to, I saw some light! We wanted something powerful enough to do up to 2 acres of cutting and a ditch with a steep pitch. It had lots of features, which I wasn't sure about. Well...I saw it said free shipping, no tax....and thought wow that is another big savings. I... more

Too Many Problems!
Right out of the crate the trouble started with the AC 130 AWS. The mower seemed to have trouble moving in forward and reverse, it would move, but sluggishly. Trying to go up any slope was not possible. The brake worked but the pedal felt like it was in a bind. We dropped the deck and looked at everything, but nothing jumped out at us on first inspection, so we tried to move around without the deck. After only a few starts and stops, sparks and smoke started coming from under the tractor. We... more

I just got to use the Allis Chalmers mower this week. I have two houses on my farm and both have an acre of grass to cut. As far as performance, I am totally disappointed. It steers very hard, backs up way too slow and the mower deck is not at heights that lever says. I was extremely disappointed in the engine being a Briggs and Stratton. My family has been in the farming business for 100 years and very familiar with Allis Chalmers machinery and to find a Briggs and Stratton engine was... more

So Far...so Bad...
I ordered my mower on June 30, 2011, and so far I've used it 3 times and now it is useless. To start off with, if I'd done my homework, I'd have found out that the "sale" price is the same as the MSRP on the manufactures website. However, I did save on sales tax and shipping, so I can't complain about that too much. When I received the mower, the battery was dead so I charged it as recommended. I did notice that the battery had a 2009 date code on it. After the first mowing, I had... more

I received mine at about 11:00 on Friday, removed it from the crate, put the battery on charge, read the manual. On Saturday I checked the oil, filled it with gasoline, climbed on, turned the key on, it started. I had been using an MTD, 18 hp, 46 inch cut for the past 23 years. What a difference, the four wheel steering will take a little practice, but I like already. Another thing to get use to is the pedal on the right, it allows the tractor to move forward and reverse.

My old... more

My New Tractor
I am more than pleased with my new tractor. I have 2 acres of hilly, steep property it took me over six hours to mow with a self propeled mower. With Allis I am able to mow the entire "multi area" in about one hour. The tractor handles very nicely - a little hard to turn in low speed but overall it does a great job with little effort. I also use less gas and now look forward to what was once a very difficult job. I have just ordered a aerator with spreader combo, it looks like... more

Great Lawn Tractor For Price
We researched many brands, prices, specs, etc with many vendors. We decided on this one because the price was excellent for the horsepower and features we were looking for. We are not disappointed. We paid more 10 years ago for a similar mower and it did not have the nice sharp turns this one has.

We use it for 4 acres of mowing - mostly prairie grasses and weeds and also use it on our lawns around the house. This shipped and arrived very quickly. A similar mower comparison of another... more

A Great Mower
I absolutely love the Allis Chalmers 4 wheel steering mower! The 23 hp engine is smooth, quiet and provides all the power anyone would ever need. Unit is also a great mulching mower (I ordered the optional mulching kit).

The 4 wheel steering does take a bit of getting used to. I have discovered that if you slow down before you start to execute a turn you won't have any trouble. When you get the hang of this beast you can trim almost as close to trees, walls, flower beds, etc. as you can with... more

Great mower for the money. Has an all steel hood, hydro trans, cruise control, fun to run, does a nice job mowing. I would buy one again.

Took A Chance
I took a chance and ordered a major item via internet. The Company has great e-mail communication re: the order status and shipping status. When the mower arrived and I used it for the first time I was completely satisfied and impressed. Great Company selling good products. They are a 10 on the scale of 1 to 10 for me.

One Ruggid Unit..
I purchased this unit on line sight unseen. I tried four local dealers to access the unit, however they had none in stock. This is my second purchase from Power Equipment Direct, my first being an Ariens Professional Series Tracked Snow Thrower.

This AC Lawn Tractor is a very well crafted piece of equipment. Nice engineering. It came with Mulching Blades on the unit. Not knowing this, I purchased the Mulch Kit. I put the Mulch Kit Flap on the unit and cut some damp lawn to see if it... more

Four Wheel Steer Experience:
It took about three hours of operating this mower to get used to the four wheel steering. I had to learn to slow down a little when coming out of a sharp turn. It takes a little muscle to steer back from a turn. Now it is not a problem as I got used to that. Now I am vary satisfied with this machine and am spoiled with the maneuverability of this unit. The controls, mower, engine & hydrostatic trans all work great. Also on my hilly landscape the stability is greater than most mowers... more

Great Tractor
I can't speak to the longevity of this machine as I just received it 3 days ago, but I can tell you my initial impression is quite good. It arrived in TWO DAYS from when I ordered it! It cuts great and the four wheel steering is a feature I never knew I couldn't live without! The battery was from 09 and needed to be charged but that was the only thing I had to prep.

Seems to be of solid construction with heavy duty steering linkages. I couldn't really find any reviews on this mower so... more

Allis Chalmers Delivery By R&l......
Mowers Direct gave us a tracking # to the R&L delivery service telling us our new mower was on time and to be delivered on 9-9-11. Then when we called R&L on 9-8 to find the time of delivery, we were told it might not be here till Monday. It showed online on 9-9 that it would be here on time on Friday. A man named Chris called at 2pm to tell me that the mower just came in and that it was too late and would have to be Monday. It was scheduled to be here between 10am and 2pm. And... more
