    Just curious if any of you have ever returned a rider to Lowes after 30 days if you were having problems with the mower? I bought one a couple months ago for around the house and am having some engine issues with it and would rather return it and buy a used commercial ZTR if possible. I know my local Lowes takes just about everything back no matter what the time limit but not sure about mowers. Figure I would ask on here out of curiosity before I ask at my local store tomorrow. Thanks guys.

    Yes, I returned a Husquvarna ZTR that had a 42" cut. I went with the 50" Cub Cadet RZT. That was also a mistake.

    I now mow with an Exmark Lazer Z AS (60" UltraCut). I wish I would have bought the commercial grade machine the first.

    I sure wish I would have returned a cub cadet walk behind. Here I thought I was getting a quality machine from Lowes. What a piece of crap. Ran one year and during second season rings went bad. Wouldn't return it. I now own a 36 metro. There is just no comparison to a true commercial machine. Anyone debating it save the extra money and get something that will last a long long time!

    hey from what i've seen and heard lowe's will take anything they sell back and give you a new product without even looking at it or getting a pro who nows look at it to see what the problem is. if you ask me i would take it back and visit a local Husqvarna dealer to get a zero turn mower. i've dealt with the husqvarna name for about 3 yers without one complaint.
