I have a better 36 with a 13 HP briggs that is for sale. I purchased this mower in Feb of this year. It has 7 hrs on it and runs fine. I bought it with the idea of gates and small yards. well, I am 65 years old and that sucks. I have only used it to cut my yard.and that is fine. It has a mulch kit, which I think sucks and a sulky. If anyone is interested in this unit I will sell for 1500.00. I am in spring hill, fl, and will NOT ship.
