Would you keep it or attempt to return it. Just purchased it today and have now learned that maybe the engines are crap or not the greatest out there. Did not know it was a home owner model when purchased from the local Landscape dealer. What else is out there is the under $400 range, that may have been a better buy? I do not plan on using it everyday, just when needed for trim work. I bought it because of price, deck goes high, gets around pretty easy, and moves quick.
