Welcome to the club! On my second one and the first one is still slamming. Indestructable, from the handlebars (notice the heavy duty support brackets?), to the wheels (you prolly won't need to replace), drive,and famous Honda OHC motor. Run Amsoil or Mobil 1. Yea the mulcher sucks, I bag mostly. Its really hard to beat.

Aloha,
P.Y.S.

Now that ive had mine for several days i have these observations .this machine is like a rock.
for bagging it cant be beat, but it would not be for someone who just mulches ,it is not a good mulcher.It has the best cut i have ever seen on a 21 inch while bagging.
and even in wet conditions the deckgoes longer before it gets plugged up

my toros you have to clean the deck after each cut because they will have a ton of guck under the deck
