Of course it is going to be junk!!! Does anyone really believe a quality ZTR can be built, that they can sell for that price, and still make a profit??? Not gonna happen!!!!
This is a mower that will compete with the junkiest Cub Cadet mowers. That would be the Cubs that are sold at the big box stores. This will just be a junky Cub-quality mower from the Hustler factory.
Save up some more money and buy one of the Hustler models that will last more than a year or two.
