You get what you pay for. You bought a bottom of the line machine and you received a bottom of the line machine. Mowing 2 acres is a lot for a D105. Several people tried to talk you into a better machine that would last longer. All lawn mowers are not created equal.Thanks for noticing the details.
You're right, I scrolled to the end, and I was not eligible for the recall.
I feel a lot better about that now.
Still seems nuts that a $1500 product can die in only 7 years.
And what's even more insane is that everyone here seems to think that's normal.
