If you have one of these take it back now because if you nurse it through the first year then you are up a creek because it will not last. Replaced 4 drive cables (the last straw was today when the newly designed beefed up cable broke at the spring which is the only part they probably did not redesign on the "new" cable). Transmission bolts broke, transmission belt shredded, Kawasaki engine blew oil and seized. Brackets holding the front wheels worn out (mechanic said they would have to be replaced). All this on a machine that has had two and a half months use on it. Going in tomorrow, the dealer said he will take it back so I can get a replacement 21. I have used Honda 21's for eight years and never had a problem except replacing a cable or two after a couple of years. Just warning anyone else that has one of these. Also, I don't need guys trying to blow up there ego saying I told you everyone not to buy this. I had doubts about buying a first year machine but thought with exmarks then flawless reputation that this would be a great machine.
