After my 12+ yr old Toro self paced mower decided it no longer wanted to start, I decided to finally buy the mower I have always wanted. I should have done this 13 yrs ago! The Hydrostatic transmission is amazing, smooth, powerful and easy to use. People
say the operations are too complicated?? As soon as I pulled it out of the box, my 8yr son, figured out how to work everything and mowed the front lawn, not too tricky. The only two complaints I have are that there is no hose connection to clean the underside
of the deck off and that the bag could seal better. Regarding the bag, it could be I just have not figured out a way to remove the bag with out dropping all the clippings that collect at the top where the bag locks into the mower and against the inside of
the bag and the back of the deck. Regarding the hose port , not a huge deal since the plastic deck cleans up pretty well, but on this price level for a walk behind mower, I really don't like lifting the mower to spray it off.
Overall, I really like to mow now, what more can I say.
