Great Mower!
After reading reviews and researching for the mower with good quality plus value. The mower starts right up, cuts good, and great self propel.
Pros: Durable, Price, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

Fine For Ideal Conditions
I've used the mower 3 times now and in my opinion there are a few issues with the design of the machine that you may want to consider before making a purchase.

First, and most important, the surface you use to impel the machine is also the steering surface. Not a problem if your yard is smooth, flat and relatively free of obstructions (trees, bushes, ornamental rocks etc).

But if your yard is bumpy you will find that the impeller/steering mechanism bounces and flops around considerably.... more

"The only drawback is the lack of a return policy. Don't get me wrong - I'm not complaining, I knew that going in. I took a gamble that I'd like the machine but it didn't work out for me. Had I liked the mower I'd feel like I got a great deal. As it is I am now stuck with a machine that I don't like and that doesn't really meet my needs. So I have to sell it for a loss and a get a new mower. Unfortunately now I don't want to take another chance on getting a mower on line. It's back to bricks and mortar for me."

Self Propelled Model
I received my mower in the window of time as promised. I have used the mower 4 times now and it does a good job. Using the gear handle is a bit cumbersome, but after the second time mowing my lawn, I'm starting to get the use to it.

When my mower arrived, there were several loose parts in the bow and one of the mounting bolts was lodged in the rear wheel drive shaft. I thought I was going to have to send it back, but after about an hour of work, I was able to dislodge it and extract it from... more

Love It !
I purchased it as a back up for my John Deere riding mower. I'm 84 and have arthritis in shoulders & right knee with just under an acre to mow. Lots easier to ride than walk behind but my Cub Cadet does a better looking lawn and really not too hard to operate, especially when it almost always starts on the first pull.

Great Machine With Only One Flaws!
This Cub Cadet performs great but has an annoying flaw. The bag seems to clog almost always before the bag is even close to full. All the other features are great and it runs strong and moves with power and ease.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Fast, High Quality
Cons: Only Con I Would Say Is The Bag Clogs Up Very Easy

Was So Impressed, I Mowed My Lawn Twice!
My previous mower has been a reliable unit, but over the last few years, the self propel has stopped working and most recently, the height adjustment on the front wheels broke for the second time and it just wanted to turn right all the time. After that happened on Memorial Day, I said to myself it was time to replace it. I had entertained the idea of replacing it last year, so I had already compared units and knew the mower I wanted, so shopping around wasn't necessary. A local Big Box Store... more

If You Can Walk, You Can Mow
Bought this for my sister with a large yard. When I tried it, I was amazed. Starts on first pull. Self propel is amazing. If you can walk, you can mow... As this mower takes near zero effort to push. What I found also as a great bonus is the ability to push and trim from one position just with the self propel, around trees, etc. Will buy another for my daughter!!
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations

Light Weight But And Easy To Operate
We have several acres that need mowing and we needed an addition to our riding mower. When I got this mower I was so surprised that it was so easy and safe and cuts beautifully. As a woman, I would recommend it to anyone. The only thing is that it would be nice to have the option of an electric start.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, Light Weight, High Quality

Not Pleased.
Just got it. It's assembled and started right up and cuts very nicely. I assumed that you could set the drive bar in one position but it pivots back and forth as you mow. It never feels like you have a firm grip on the machine because your hands and wrists are constantly moving back and forth. I have a lot of pain in my wrists after mowing my small yard. Either I'm doing something wrong with my machine (please tell me) or this machine is not for me. The big black and yellow plastic 'shield'... more
