The differential lock is engaged at all times. When making turns the inside rear tire tends to tear up the turf a little. This isn't a deal breaker for me but something people need to be aware of. I wish it was made where it could be disengaged.

This tractor is super!  Love the Kawasaki Engine. Powerful and starts right up without choke. Well made. This replaces 17 yr old John Deere S118 42in. This is much better. Only minor complaint is that it plows on sharp turning. You just need to learn to turn slower.  I have no issues with cut height nor any level issues. They should add a gas gauge rather then plastic viewer. But this tractor is great. Bit more expensive but so far way worth it. Very happy with it. OH I had it delivered to my home and delivery was great but I had a tough time getting it off the 6in pallet platform. I used my chainsaw and my two sons. You can't get it off by yourself. Assembly was easy but took a some time. Enjoy!

I don't think I really needed the differential lock( can't make sharp turns without digging up the lawn.

The lawn tractor was delivered without a scratch. Added fuel, checked the oil and started up right away.

The equipment would be fantastic if only UPS Freight had not damaged and lost parts in the shipping. Back orders for parts are slow and easy to blame on Virus issues but does not help when the bags are missing, the mulching blades were lost, the grass chute was cracked, and the knobs to keep the seat from falling off are on backorder. It has been a back jarring experience to use this beautiful machine with less than perfect pieces. 3 weeks and still waiting.

A good price and great service.
I will probably have this tractor for 20 to 25 years so I got this model.  Lower gauge metal on the deck, nice seat, Differential, push/pull blade engagement, Kawasaki engine, and I love the key setting to keep the blades going when I reverse.
