    "A middle-of-the-road product. Not great but decent and affordable, which is something, in and of itself. It works fine, at least when it's new, but I'm not sure it will stand the test of time so well, which is why I bought an extended warranty. I bought it for my parents who really need something like that and couldn't afford the more expensive models. We'll see how the plastic components age. There is quite a bit on it that feels flimsy, and I suspect the plastic they use is not the strongest/best quality. But I liked the way it handled, it made it easy to turn, go around a tree, that kind of thing, and the engine seems strong enough. Worth considering, at the very least."

    "This mower has a powerful Briggs & Stratton motor and a six speed transmission. It has a large forty two inch mowing deck with a spring assisted lift to make adjustments easy. I like the large gas tank as it allows me to mow my whole yard in one go which was something I was unable to do with my last mower."
