    "This comes unassembled so if you're not well-versed in putting this sh.t together you're going to have a hard time. Good thing this came with instructions. I think this is the best riding lawn mower for the money though. It's not cheap but you get a lot of good specifications in return. overall i think it's a really good deal."

    "Clippings can be discharged easily with this mower and i like it. That's usually my problem with other cheap mowers. Clippings are stuck and it's hard to clean."

    "Not the best riding lawn mower for hills. It can't go upwards that much. i'm a little disappointed. But it makes up for that with the grass cutting capabilities. It's superb and fast. The cutting is smooth and seamless. Just make sure the surface is flat and it'll be perfect. It's cheaper than others too. If you've got a flat lawn i say go for it! "
