Suburban Yard Machine
by Timothy D Edwards
Model year: 2010Date Purchased: 2011-05-22Number of Hours: 300+
"This is a great machine for areas like suburban housing or apartment complexes.
As soon as it meets a hill too big or you find the right root, rock, etc. you'll find yourself stopped in your tracks. Slightly larger tires could be a simple fix for this but the bagging unit does create low ground clearance. While being able to bag grass clipping is nice, I wish that this unit was totally removable because the mount hangs down too low and catches things.
Despite this the tractor is built fairly well but does have a few things like the plastic steering wheel has loosened a few times and the hood will sometimes rattle. This is also a fairly basic machine so its most useful features are just the mower deck and bagger. It does also have headlights, a tow point,and hydrostatic drive but quite a few other tractors have these as well.
With that being said this machine is incredibly reliable and has never had any problems starting up on even the coldest days. Service is fairly simple and if kept up I'm sure it would run for a very long time. The main killer for this machine would have to be the low ride height. We have broken several shear pins off on roots and by hitting hidden holes. with just a bit more strength and ride height this would not be a problem at all. All in all this has been great value for suburban mowing but not at the wooded acreage we have moved to. Would highly recommend for home owners with large areas of lawn or small fields."
