I'm not sure I'd want that exhaust pipe like that, it appears to be exitting just in front of the rear tire, and might heat up the tire, not necessarily enough to damage the tire, but maybe enough to result in yellowing of the grass (if say, the mower sits for a minute with the engine running, making a hot spot on the tire, then moving could temporarily cause the grass to yellow).
Maybe feel the tire after the engine has been running for a bit, to see if it gets hot to the touch?
