just busted the 20 hr mark on mine, I love it, suprisingly confortable even being on it about 3 hrs straigh on the same lawn. cuts great, and I love the deck hight adjustment,its done by a crank and you can make some seriously small adjustments to match another mower or just level out an area. I have no complaints on it yet except the price lol, but I guess its about the ame roughly as a regular z
