A Great Mower For Large Areas
I live on 6.6 acres and needed a big mower. I used my John Deere tractor for years, but I thought I would like to get a mower that was big enough to due the job and be a little closer to the ground since I was having back problems. The Swisher 66" was just what I was looking for and it does a great job. With the added sun shade I can drive in the New Mexico sun and still be comfortable. I have enjoyed using the mower to cut my yard. My wife even wants to drive the mower and do yard too.

Nightmare
Mower is big and was delivered by flatbed. Due to our remote location about a mile off the paved road I was fortunate the truck driver took it to the house with his forklift. I say fortunate because it came without a key and manual. When the key finally arrived the mower went completely dead after 2 hours of run time.

After 5 days of phone calls and confusion finally got Swisher to get someone to pick up the mower for repair. Hopefully this Monday. It's now Friday a week after... more
Pros: Features, Fast
Cons: Heavy, Unreliable, Bad Instructions, Packaging

Ronald,
We are sorry that you experienced issues with your mower. Swisher tried on several occasions to contact you via the phone number on the order. However, whoever kept answering the call repeatedly disconnected the call. As you note, they have resolved the issue by making arrangements to have it picked up for repair.

Disappointed
I purchased this lawn mower about 45 days ago.

Delivery of the unit was frustrating, after spending an hour or so we were able to drive the lawnmower to the end of the truck. Could not unload while still in crate because the lift was too small. Once the lawnmower was on the driveway, the left rear tire was flat. I fixed the tire, and started cutting grass. About a week later I went to cut the grass however it kept backfiring and would die.

This went on for about 10 to 15 minutes. ... more
Cons: Low Quality, Heavy, Unreliable, Expensive

Father's Day Gift Turns To Junk!
The mower was a Father's Day Gift! I mowed my yard 3 times. It dies randomly I changed the plugs, etc. It helped then started back to what it was doing, which was dying, backfires. When it runs it surges until you engage the blade and dies. It won't pull itself. My son (who is 8 yrs old, and thinks he payed with his money for FATHER'S DAY) got me this mower. I read reviews, watched commercials none of it was true.

If he had not bought this mower, I would take it back and for the rest of my... more

Gene,
Reading a review where any consumer is disappointed with a Swisher Brand product is very concerning and rises quickly to the very top of Swisherís Executive Management.

The Swisher Team works very hard to build the highest quality products possible and the last thing any Swisher employee wants is for a consumer to be unhappy with a product.

We spoke with the Farm & Home store and it is our understanding that they switched out your mower. If you still continue to experience issues, please reach out to us toll free at 800-222-8183.

Swisher strongly contends itís Zero Turn Mowers are not ďjunkĒ as you have referenced in your review nor are Briggs & Stratton inferior power-plants. The Zero Turn Mower category is the Swisher Brandís most rapidly growing product category over the last 24 months and the vast majority of consumer feedback received has been very positive regarding the unique/patented control system and overall quality.

That being said Ė Swisher strives for every consumer to be pleased with their purchase and we are committed to making Pro-Grade Products priced for Residential use.

Thank you for choosing Swisher.

Reviews Are Wrong
I bought this beast to save me time, I work construction and I have limited time home on the weekends, what used to take me SIX HOURS, now only ONE HOUR.... I do not know the Pin Head that wrote that it was Cheaply Built, 28 years in construction says. It may be missing some grease points on key components and that there is no shock absorb-er system (Direct Spin to ground contact).

This Unit is by far the BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK, you will get period. To the Engineer.. Why did not not put a... more

Swisher Model. # Ztr2766bs
No expert on zero turn mowers, but I like this machine. It looks to be very well built and designed. I like the joy stick controls, instead of lap bars, and it seems to have plenty of power with the 27 horse motor. Also like the larger capacity for gas.

Michael,
Thank you for your positive review on your mower. Like you, we have found many people prefer the joysticks over the lap bar. You can actually use the arm rests! Thanks for choosing Swisher!
