Very Quick And Fun
Mowing the lawn takes a fraction of the time it took before due to trees, flower beds, etc. on the lawn. I ordered this model as it had a fabricated deck and was classified as a medium grade mower. The 46-inch blades make a big difference, but 42-inch blades would probably be acceptable.

Get the steering wheel, even though it adds greatly to the price due to steerable front wheels. The pros use the lap bars, but they use them all day and want very quick turning.

Also, your wife is not... more

"Their service department was quick in responding to my request, however they had the wrong information. Not their fault, as the manufacturer gave them the wrong wrench size. The truck that delivered the huge heavy crate could not fit it on the lift gate however the trucking company sent an extra man too compensate for it. They did a good job and deserved a tip. Mower was well described and honest on web."

Terrible Product
First time in shop was at 5 hours. A spindle locked up. The cutting blades are very thin and bend easy. This causes the spindles to lock up. At 12.8 hours the right control arm started to become sluggish then the mower just stopped working.

Back to the shop. Also after 12.8 hrs the motor had used almost a quart of oil. The shop said the belt had come off and that is why the steering guit and they ran the mower without being under load and told me it did not burn oil. Would not recommend... more

Difficult Property
2_ acres of uneven property, many rocks and trees. The mower is very easy to maneuver and the reverse mowing feature very handy around trees and objects.

Zero turn with steering wheel easier to operate for my wife than the handle bars.

Only problem was removing from the crate bottom. Very difficult, had to cut several times and pull of with tractor.

Trouble With Repairs
I bought my mower less than 2 yrs ago. In that time I have had a continued problem. My problem is the plastic fan that cools the drive motor n the top belt on the right side of the mower. I have had to replace it three times already n it needs replacing AGAIN now.

I believe there should be a guard to protect this or a different design. My mower is a RZTS 46in cut with a 23 hp Kohler. I need to know what to do to stop this problem. Can't get any help from my dealer
