    i know a guy that's had one for years and it's reliable. i personaly find it dificult to adjust the forward -nuetral-and reverse lever while trying to hold on. i guess you'll get used to it.

    what kind of oil do you run in the tranny? Its got a Kohler magnum 12 hp.Its pull start and i need to rebuild the motor because it smokes.I want to get it ready for next year.Its got all new belts and blades. shes old but cuts a nice yard.I also need to get the washers that adjust the front casters higher or lower. They got lost before i got the mower.Kohler numbers model M12T spec 471543.
