    I have one that has close to 175 hours on it. The only thing ever happened to mine is I hit a hole in ground and one of the pot welded cables supporting the deck broke. Cost me $7 to fix. Other than that a good mower and leaves a good cut as well. Plenty of power.

    I have a RZT 50 with a 22hp Kawi. At first it was great, but the quality of the cut slowly went downhill even with keep adjusting the deck and stuff. To get a good lookin lawn it needed to double cut everything. It had a new deck bolt put on late spring and the blades are alwys sharp. It has around 210 hours on it.


    I fixed that. Take off the big black plastic covers were the control levers go through. You will be able to see the switch that turns off the blades. Use a socket wrench and remove it from the frame, turn it around so the switch is now facing down and remount it. Now I can mow in reverse.
