    Looks homeowner quality to me. A 21 HP motor on a 50 inch ZTR with only 3 gallons of gas? Id stay away.

    I'm assuming you are a commercial user. This is STRICKLY a consumer piece of equipment made by MTD.

    Like the others have said, its a home owner machine. It won't tolerate commercial use, you'll were it out in no time at all!

    im going to agree w/ the previous 2 posters...

    if you are looking at something for personal use on less than 3 acres and its going to be maintained, its not that bad for a resi machine.
