Solid Product (but A Few Caveats)
I have had this mower for several weeks now and have used it twice. I really like it. I have about 4 acres of "yard" to mow. I have a Husqvarna RZ5424 that I bought several years ago from PED. It does a fantastic job around the house and around our orchard, but we need something that would handle the slight slope of the rest are backyard a bit better. This Swisher does just that! I am pulling it with a Suzuki KingQuad with not a problem. The Swisher starts right up and runs... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Price, Fast
Cons: Handle to raise/lower deck in bad spot, Battery not included. Must buy battery, fill battery and charge

Excellent Product
The mower was well packed and in good condition. I have used it twice with very good results. I have 20 acres of old pasture land and the land is slightly rolling. This mower has worked perfectly so far. The electric start is the way to go.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Durable, Easy To Use, Easy To Store
Cons: None at this time.

Great Machine
Really like the mower. I pull it offset behind my John Deere X740 and mow both sides of a half mile road. Lots of compliments from the neighbors.

I am a retired welder and machinist and know quality when I see it. This is really a well built and durable machine.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Durable, High Quality

Great Mower
I needed a mower to cut 2.5 acres. Lot is some what hilly. This mower performs like a dream. Hooked up to my ATV, it leaves the yard looking great.

Mower is designed for finish cutting. So, don't try to clear a new path in heavy thigh high weeds with it. I wound up ripping the belt when one of the blades got jammed in some tall weeds. This allowed me to do some maintenance that probably wouldn't normally be needed for a couple of years - putting on a new.belt. The documentation is not real... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Reliable, High Quality
Cons: Documentation needs improvement

Decent Mower For The Price
This is a decent mower for the price. Make sure you grease the bearings in the wheels. After half a season, both wheels needed new bearings, but that was my fault. Also, I'm not sure how it happened, but the arm connecting the mower to my ATV is bent causing the mower to be off center.

I wish it was easier to move the position of the center arm. The nut/bolts are not easy to get to. There should be a quick release to change the position.
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Difficult To Use, Packaging, Durability, Loud

A Good Mower!
I usually don't like to review an item until I have used it for a while. I bought this mower 3 years ago, so I figured it was time to comment about it. This Swisher Trail Mower is a replacement of an earlier similar Swisher model which I owned and used for more than 7 years. The earlier one had a few issues but nothing serious. I had to replace the belt a couple of times. This wasn't a real simple task to do. Mostly it was hard to start at times. I upgraded mainly because I wanted the electric... more

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

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

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.
