From the day this unit was delivered, I have enjoyed using it. I have the 54" mower deck and the snow blower. With the snow we get every winter the cheaper belt driven snow blowers didn't cut it. I needed shaft drive for everything.
With the snow blower I got the manual chute rotator (much faster than the electric one) and the electric chute deflector (manual operation requires getting off the tractor and adjusting the chute from up front). The electric motor unit for the chute deflector is poorly designed and gets water in it and freezes. The dealer managed to get a new one for me at no charge. I grease the actuator shaft well which puts a shield on it so the water does not get in.
Otherwise, this is fantastic. To be able to do a U-turn in the driveway without backing up is amazing as is the mowing around trees with a single time around. I just find the cruise control to be a bit of a waste. Not enough straight runs to use it efficiently.
