Picked mine up from a lowes in the suburbs as a return w/ the complaint attached "won't mulch tall wet grass"..... I made a cash offer of 40% retail and took it home. The next spring I found myself using it commercially on several accounts I was carrying. After 6 years of use (mostly abuse) I only need one wheel as the inner drive wheels teeth have stripped. It is light enough to be picked up by one person and has sufficient power. What has sold me on this unit was low cost exceptional fuel economy and surprising longevity. It even stripes well for a cheap mower. The self propulsion system is also simple in design and the unit mulches very well.

Parts availability willing, I will have this one for another 6 years.
