I give this riding mower a ten out of ten because it is so awesome! I finally have gotten to invest in a riding mower for my business and I could not be happier. It is so easy to maneuver through the grass and even on hills it works perfectly. I love that there are different speeds so if I have a large, flat yard to cut I can go really fast and get done so quickly. If I have a smaller, hard to maneuver yard I can go really slowly and be much more precise. The steering wheel is so easy to grip and you do not have to turn it fifteen times to get a full turn, but at the same time you get really precise turning action. The blades are easy to adjust if you need to. The seat is very comfortable and you can do a fairly large amount of driving on one tank of gas. I highly recommend this mower. Handling So easy to manuever around even when using the highest speed setting. Ease of Use It is really easy to use and very quickly you can learn how to steer and use this machine. Engine Power Great engine power.
