I bought one in 2016 and only problem I have had is mower belt sliding off. Have bought 2 from Sears with same number but different lengths. One works, one doesn't. Sears can't explain it so will buy next one off brand and length that works. Use for cutting 1 acre somewhat hilly , plowing/discing,tilling garden, snow blowing in winter. Only 200 hrs and change oil when recommended. Very satisfied.
