    I've got a woods. It cut's very good. The only problem I've had is maintaining my deck height. I fixed it with a chain attached to the front of the deck and to the top link on my tractor. Belt replacement is not cheap. IT ran me $60 for the belt and about 2 hours down time chasing parts and replacing. No other problems. I'm actually looking at buying another.

    You would buy another one after haveing to fix the deck height and haveing problem getting belts. Put your money in something you don,t have to fix from the get go.

    Sure I would buy another. Seeing the age of the mower and the time it has put in. Those are very"small" problems. No mower is "bullet proof". Everything will break at some point in it's life. Keep in mind that this mower is pulled behind a tractor which gives me versitility that a normal mower can't. I don't think I could find a better place to put my money for my current needs.

    Greetings- I have bought some used Woods ZTR mowers and then sold them asap. They are not very popular around DFW!!!
