I have to say i loved this mower. I do not understand what the big fuss about these mowers was all about? It has way more power, rides better, faster, boggs a lot less, hydros are ultra responsive and very torquey compared to my 757. I would almost say it almost to fast. Runs as fast as or faster than a super z or Dixie. Feels about 15. that was my only thing I wasn't crazy about.
