I have an acre of lawn, purchased the mulching kit. Does a great job, rides nice, plenty of power, and no more bagging clippings. What a step up from the 46 craftsmen :-)

Haven't got to use much
Bought new 09/19/2014 Used twice. First time no problem. Second time noticed it would mow in reverse without turning key? Shut it off to check things out- Found wiring harness was left dangling above trans. fan. Well it ate it up. Had to wait for parts . Just got it back will use some more. Parts & Labor covered under Warranty, But I think this was poor craftsmanship on part of assembler from factory.

YTH22V46 yard use only
Purchased this tractor as the one I wanted was not available ( wanted a garden tractor) sales person stated this just as good. My land is on a slope with uneven ground, we have had to pull the machine back numerous times. Does do a great job cutting even tall grass /weeds. Caution though if you have buried rocks / debris as the suction on this machine has pulled rocks up to 5" in size out of clay soil. Would not recommend if you want to use for small farm . garden work due to the limited attachments available and their cost is high. Will sell this tractor when I have the cash to purchase a large one.

Will not mulch properly at all.
Had authorized service center add a factory mulcher and it is leaving huge clumps everywhere no matter the setting. This is awful, and useless to me. I will have to sell this tractor.

YTH22V46 On Probation
I recommend the product, but with some reservation. Bought at Lowe's. First mower had problems, most likely due to whoever assembled it. Had it delivered, followed the set up directions, and found that there was almost no oil in the engine. Serviced it, mowed with it once, went out to mow again and found it sitting in a lake of oil. Had Lowe's come get it and bring me another one. Went over it with a finer tooth comb. Checked all bolts and fasteners, oil, oil drain, etc. Found missing bolts in the seat pan, again likely a product of a careless assembly person. After getting past that, it has performed well. Has turned my week-long job of push mowing my 3 acres into a 4 hour job. The ground is fairly uneven, so I can't mow full speed. Overall mowing performance is good. The one thing about mowing that is a bit disconcerting is how much the whole frame twists on sharply changing, uneven terrain like going up a bank. After my initial experience, and after seeing a few of them outside of Lowe's that had been returned and serviced for various reasons, I'm reserving judgement on reliability.
