Machine is very good and it is very efficient. Works great on small and large properties.

I have to say i am greatly disappointed in turfco's backing of this product. The cruise control (foot speed control) has a plastic fitting that is easily stripped. I cannot find an aluminum or steel substitute any where.

They finally came out with a skid plate to protect the hydrostatic transmission. They tell you you can go over curbs and show it on youtube, but the bolts shear off easily (based on our less than 1 year old unit that shows almost no damage to the trans yet a bolt sheared off and cracked the aluminum case). They will not warranty the trans and it is $1200 to replace.

Our B&S engine bent a valve rod...b&s mechanic will not warranty and turfco will not help us or give us someone from briggs to deal with.
