It Does What I Expected Posted by Rpuffd on 07/21/2012

I purchased this mower to reduce my time in the saddle of a riding lawn mower. I must say, it has lived up to that expectation. I have reduced my mowing time from 3 hours down to 1.

I would have given a better rating for build quality but I happen to own a Honda 4518 Rider and nothing compares to that. The 221 is a very sturdy unit and it is heavy! I found out the hard way in wet/soft ground. Just lifting the seat is a chore, it must weigh at least 50 pounds. I only have 10 hours on the unit so it may be too soon to tell, but I think this baby is a keeper.

It is a bit pricey, but compared to other diesel ZTR's, not really that bad (hence my 4 for value). My 4 for features is because I feel for the price you pay for one of these, it should have a tach. and oil pressure gauge.
