Mower Won't Start
This is a great mower, does a beautiful cut. The issue with the mower not starting was paint on the frame where the ground was connected. After taking the cable off and removing the excess paint it started right away. I have used it about 3 times now. It cut great, even thru some tall grass, one tuff mower. Maybe the issue with the ground cable should be address in the trouble shooting section of the manual.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Mower Won't Start
Mower was delivered in good condition. After buying the recommended battery and charging it overnight, nothing happens when I turn the key. I checked all connections, and still nothing.

I thought the battery was the problem, so I went and bought another battery and it still won't crank - very frustrating. Stuck with a mower I can't get going. This is the second swisher tow-behind mower I have owned, and I never had this problem with the first one.

Cut Down On Mowing Time.
Love the new Swisher. Has really cut down my mowing time, almost in half! The only thing I don't care for, is the small diameter hitch pin. Other than that, plain awesome.

All Is Well That Ends Well.
I am motivated to amend my review, as we did get the mower going. It was missing a switch in the front of the tongue (possibly removed in the warehouse or something) Once the switch was shipped, everything works well now. There are so many Swisher models, that we could not communicate and find out easily the reason it would not start. Persistence and photos and many phone calls, finally identified the problem - no switch. The mower does work well and I can recommend it to others.
Pros: Features, Quiet, Fast
Cons: Initially Missing A Switch

Great Mower
I bought this mower to tow behind my ATV. Functionally it tows easily and provides a great cut. It started easily out of the crate. My only caution is that assembling the tow bar to the mower is a bit tricky- the nuts go under the mount and the clearance for assembly is minimal. If you want to frequently change the position of the tow bar to the mount (straight tow to offset tow), it will be time consuming. The tow bar mount to the ATV hitch is at its lowest setting and it needs more to be... more

Time Saver
My new Swisher trail mower works very well in tandem with my lawn tractor. It saves me a lot of time on large, open areas. Smaller areas with obstacles are better suited for the lawn tractor alone.

Rough Start
Arrived in good shape - no apparent damage. After removing crate found one air filter lock tabs broken. At first starter would not work. Found too much paint on ground wire. After scraping paint off ground connection surface, mower started and ran beautiful.

Pleased So Far . . . .
I have 5 acres 1.5 hours away to mow. I generally go once a week so mowing while there is important. My brother bought a zero turn type for I guess over $10,000 or so. Not in my wheel house. I have a 06 Cub Cadet with a Kohler motor . . . I love those motors ! All to say in the very short time 2 trips to mow all has done quite well.

I've seldom been able to mow it all on a trip but I was able to on those trips. I've planted lots of trees for shade for my grandchildren also a few... more

Rugged Mower.
My wife and I pull this with a Yamaha 350 Grizzly on a 5 acre tract of land. ( Not all mow-able) unit works real good. Sometimes after initial start and mowing with it for an hour or so, unit will not restart!?

However if I remove wire from kill switch, reattach it, the mower will start. Not sure if this is a coincidence or not. Settings on throttle ( on motor) could be better marked.
Otherwise really happy with it!
