The price, reliable start up even after winter months in the garage. We bought the trailer that came with it and that has been very useful at times.
The drive belt has been replaced so many times and if not replaced then it keeps slipping off the pulleys. Would not buy again and this mower is the reason that I joined consumer as I am fed up and want to upgrade!
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
Of the 289 Consumer members who owned a ride-on and participated in our reliability survey, almost two in five reported their mower had needed repair, making them by far the least reliable product we survey.
Unfortunately, only two ride-on brands had sufficient respondents to give a margin of error narrow enough that we could comment on their results. John Deere ride-ons returned better reliability than average, with only 25% needing repair, while 39% of Husqvarna owners reported an issue with their ride-on, a shade over the average of 38%. John Deere were the most satisfied ride-on owners, with 75% very satisfied with their purchase.
