Thank you for the feedback. So far the mower works great. I really like the desk wash system. It seems to release the majority of the grass off the deck, and the 42" deck fits nicely through my gate.!!
I just purchased the Mulch plug with blades and the hitch to pull my thatcher and aerator
My neighbor just asked me if I want to mow his lawn!!
Between the $40 a week I'm saving by cutting my own property and the $40 I'll be getting from him each week, looks like i'll be close to break even on the mower this year.
Plus I got a free Dump Cart from JD when I bought the mower
