Q: Is the battery included on the electric start model? I have talked to some individuals that insist that it won't be.
by Dean from Washington on April 15, 2016

A: Dean - the battery is not included on Swisher tow behind mowers with electric start
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I am thinking about pulling the Swisher 60" 17.5 H.P. mower behind my ATV. Can you tell me approximately how fast you recommend going? How many MPH will I be able to go on a relatively flat surface (normal hight grass) while maintaining a finish cut?
by Matt from Maryland on April 07, 2014

A: Matt - Swisher does not recommend mowing at a speed of more than 4 or 5 miles per hour. Mowing at speeds faster than this will lead to less consistent look of the cut when you are finished.

Makes Short Work Out Of A Large Lawn.
Everything goes together fairly easy and fast. The blades look like the strongest and best blades ever.
Unfortunately the spring on the idler pulley broke after just 1 hour of use and i am waiting for a replacement to really give it many hours of use.

I have the same mower that I bought 10 years ago, and I hope this lasts as long as the other. The old one has a 14 HP engine and this time i got the 17 HP and you can notice the difference when you get into heavy long grass.

Engine Is Awful
Just purchased this mower is shows up and looks well built. Go to start it and won't start. Call Briggs and Stratton and get told it sounds like an internal engine issue. Wait no one test engine before sending it out? Waited 3 weeks for this mower and now have to take back. Stick with the deer

Mows Great, But.
Had a problem with the engine to deck belt, the belt kept breaking, after 3 belts I figured out that the adjustment was too tight and was pulling the belts in two, after loosening the adjustment rod and installing a gates black belt which is more stout than green belts, the problem is fixed, also the electric start fuse kept blowing, after 3 fuses I figured out that the start solenoid was shorted, I replaced the solenoid with a standard automotive solenoid, which is heavy duty and that... more

Swisher Mower
Tried to cut with it twice and both times belt broke. Riding Mower had to finish to job both times. It does not provide a finish cut. Both times the area I cut (before the belt broke) I had to go back over it with riding mower. Bush hog does a better finish cut look than this mower. It leaves behind a lot of stuff the riding mower would take down. Not happy going to replace belt and put on Craig's list. So if anyone in Texas wants a slightly used one email me. FYI it does not come with... more

Jose, the Lawn Mower Expert
Product Expert
Russell,
Thank you for your email and sorry you are having issues with the mower, this unit does have a warranty and it sounds like the pulleys are loose. I would recommend calling them directly and they will help you locate the closest dealer in your area that will work on the mower. This is not a typical complaint seen these mowers when it comes to them not providing a very nice finished look.

In terms of the battery, the Swisher Mowers have never come with a battery and this is listed in the features of the product. Again we are sorry the unit is not working to your expectations. If you have any other issues or questions, please feel free to give us a call at 800-710-7499.

"I like giving Kudos when deserved, as I have an ongoing nightmare with another online merchant AND their freight carrier. Funny how your over 500 pound 2,200.00 product came quickly and picked up at the dock, while my other nightmare is a 100 pound product that could not be picked up at the dock and then refused by me because it was damaged. Over three weeks this is going on and no product yet!"

Cuts Mowing In Half
The mower was easy to uncrate and assemble. It started easily and mowed 3 acres with no problems. It is a heavy attachment and requires a strong lawn tractor to pull it if you have hilly property. Has cut my mowing time in half.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Fast, High Quality
Cons: The Tow Bar Is Quite High And Would Swivel Better If It Was Attac

Time Saver
This mower is a huge time saver. Cutting 8 Ft swathes of grass is a huge time saver with 9 acres to mow. My mower is a bit too weak it pulls it fine but I can foresee having to change belts quite often. Guess I'm going to have to buy The JD 1025R with 60" mower to cut 10 Ft at a time.

Love this mower!

With the Swisher Tow-Behind mower..a time saver when mowing two acres of lawn. Like the way it tows behind my zero radius turn mower. Easy to maneuver around when not hitched to mower.

Ordered a 60 in. tow behind mower. At the time I ordered there was not a note (PED added) saying would not fit on a lift gate. When shipper called to schedule delivery they said they would bring it on a lift gate. Later same day received a call from a rude girl with PED saying she would not deliver it on a lift gate.

I insisted it be delivered on a lift gate as the shipper said they would do. shipping was advertised as FREE. The shipper delivered it on a lift gate with no problem. The... more
