Hour meters been mounted for 10 days now and I'm extremely happy with the performance of this machine. I've had a full day of mowing in the rain with it and currently we're having extremely heavy morning dew on thick lawns and it's handling everything very nicely. Ten day averages are
29.3 hours on 8.4 gallons of fuel for a 3.48 hours per gallon. This average includes mowing in ALL conditions

Are you bagging everything Vegandude? Hows the buildup under the deck?

Currently I'm bagging about 50 percent of the lawns. I'm still able to fill the bag when mowing in wet conditions. I'm not having issues with it dropping clumps until I disengage the blades which is what I expected. It does get build-up under the deck but it is nothing beyond what I expected. I'm not having to clear the deck mid cut. Engine power has been ok on almost every lawn except I had a couple that would've been hard with a 21
