  • Not my First Tractor - Suffers by comparison

    Sep 7, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great ride, well designed and well laid out controls.
    Cons: HORRIBLE cutting quality. Rigid frame makes for poor traction on uneven terrain.

    Summary: I have had several tractors to cut my 2-1/2 acre lot. This one has some of the best features, and does the worst job. Let's start with the good stuff. I purchased the tractor about 4 months ago because my old one was getting tired. After looking at eve ... read more

    Cons: minor wiring issues and Gas guzzling.

    Summary: I am the president of a local Fish and Game Club. We have some considerable acreage that requires mowing. This tractor was a donation to the club, after our 25 year old tractor "gave up the ghost". This machine however, retails for around $1,500. My ... read more

    Pros: Engine power, automatic transmission, ease of use.
    Cons: Seat doesn't slide forward all the way. Mower deck won't raise completely with blower mounting.

    Summary: ***UPDATED COMMENTS*** I bought this last year after my old lawn tractor fell apart. (It was 10 years old and I worked it to death.) I wanted the most powerful engine and the widest cutting deck I could find. After researching several models on the ... read more

    Pros: Lots of Power did cut nice.
    Cons: Not made to handle large yards or a very bumpy terrain. Built cheap. Very problematic

    Summary: I bought one of these in 2000. I mowed with it 4 times before I began having problems with it burning belts off. Found out it had a bad idler pully. Then it broke a deck hanger. I had it in the shop every 4th time I mowed with it. When I was in the shop ... read more

    Pros: Hydrostatic transmission makes cutting easy, wide cutting deck, plenty of power.
    Cons: Reverse pedal for hydrostatic transmission seems a bit cheap.

    Summary: I'm 25 and just bought a house with a 1 acre lot. Grass was getting high so I had to start looking for a lawn tractor. My front yard is very steep in several spots with alot of trees. I wanted to bag the grass so I figured I'd need something with ... read more
