A American Name Made In Japan....junk !
Started having issues after issues. The last one was the valve sit. It is steel pressed into aluminum. So when the motor warms up, the meddles expand to different sizes. And eventually it fails. A new head and cost to do the replacement is $362

Troubles From Day One
DO NOT BUY. I have had difficulty with this mower from the first day I bought it. took 3 months for sears to honor and fix with my extended maintenance agreement. now I need a solenoid switch, I have had this mower for less than 3 years and have had constant problems. Goes SLOW.

Pos
Bought this for my wife. She couldn't push the pedal all the way down even with the seat all the way forward, had to make some wooden blocks on the pedal. Good thing I bought the extended warranty. Had to have it repaired 4 times, last time they replaced the engine because it was blowing smoke. This POS goes VERY SLOW in forward mode (goes faster in reverse than in forward). ABSOLUTELY DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS POS!

Okay At First
Got mine and for awhile it worked fine, cut good, started easy, seemed like a decent tractor. I have 1.5 acres. Today I was cutting the yard ... black smoke started coming from the engine, chugging, spitting, tried keeping it running, clanking, had to shut it down sounded like it was falling apart. Won't start at all now. Believe its the cam shaft or a broken push rod and no I did maintenance on it regularly, oil change etc. I'm a retired mechanic. Shocked that a Briggs engine would fail like... more

Don't Do It!!!!
Bought my mower on Aug. 16th and had it delivered to my home on the following Monday. Salesmen was fine. Used it twice in 2 wks and the third time it wouldn't start. Called the Monroe, NC store and was first asked if I bought the Maintenance Agreement. I did not as I think problems arise after (or may) 4 yrs for something new. I also told him that had nothing to do with anything since I just received it. I had issues with Home Depot when I did purchase a agreement. They did not stand by their... more
