I love the way this mower cuts and handles. I'm into my second year with the mower. My biggest complaint about the mower is when you change the oil and filter. Terrible design. No way to change the filter without making a mess. Putting the oil drain hose on is a pain and it drains slow. This will probably make me buy a different mower the next time if they don't come up with a better way to change filter and oil.
