I liked it. Mulched well. Handy and lightweight, but the rear tires are narrow to keep them within the width of the deck for gates. Great instead of a 21" on gated back yards and tight areas, but lacks the width for wide area mowing. Discharged really well on cool season turf here, but I had to use the mulching kit because I did a lot of Bermuda and didn't want to bag. The deck design is from Exmark, it's the same deck as their Metro mower. The t bar steering makes it superior to the Exmark in my opinion. Unless you go hydro (ferris, exmark viking) it'd be hard to get a better 32" mower. But it's not the same as a more powerful bigger mower so base your expectations accordingly.
