Still early in it's life. The rating numbers do not mean much.
Power steering is worth the extra cost. It makes cutting around objects real easy!
-48" cutting deck performs much better than the deck on my old L130. The heavier material and better leveling design. Resulting in an improved cut.
-The power deck lift eliminates the mechanical lift lever that is on the left side of my L130. That lever can be a pain in the "but".
-The cutting speed increase of .4mph(L130vsX360) makes a huge difference in cutting time.
-It's really tough to read the fuel level especially with the Power Flow grass catcher option.
