I just bought the mower listed above for $1800 with 10 hours on it. Now can someone tell me how big a mistake I have made buying this mower. What problems to look out for and if possible how to prevent them. I cut a 3/4 acre flat suburban lot around lots of trees and need to be able to carry it easily and get through 42" gates to cut other lots VERY RARELY. I found the site after the purchase (story of my life ) I did the same thing when I bought a used 1999 Victory motorcycle.
