I've owned this model for a year to mow 2 acres of property in New York. The mower does everything that is advertised: good cut, easy to operate, handles hills well, flex forks smooth out the ride on bumpy terrain. The mulching blades cut grass short and cuts down on the clumping. I have used the machine in wet conditions and it does not bog the machine at all.
The only downside is paint easly chips off the machine.
