I had my first mower break down in three years on a job site. Just a spring on the hydro drive belt. Took it to my dealer - they had it back in my trailer and I was on my way in 30 minutes. They're the best. If they had a liquor store I'd never leave! It really frosts my cookies though when I see the mower manufacturers selling their mowers at Home Depot, Lowes, etc. SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL DEALER!
