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.

so far so good
I have only used it twice but have found it to my liking. It starts right up and runs smooth and reasonably quiet. The turning radius is surprisingly tight. Like the name says so far so good.

Good grass cutter but unused potential
I like the tractor for grass cutting and towing a little trailer or spreader but it has very little traction on slippery ground. i guess that is a trade off for not damaging the lawn but I would like a bit more bite in the tires. With a PTO shaft out the bottom to run the mower why not make some powered accesories?

My wife bought this lawnmower for my birthday. It is a replacement for a 22 year old lawnmower that had seen better days. I am amazed at how much smoother the ride is. The lawnmower is very quiet. It gives a smooth professional looking cut. I look forward to cutting the grass and love having the dump trailer that my wife bought me.
My favorite feature is the pedal drive. I have much better control of the lawnmower and love how easily I can reverse direction. Another great feature is the deck wash. Just hook a hose to the deck and turn the water on.
Looking forward to this fall when I will be buying the leaf attachment.

I really enjoy using this mower. It has great power for doing what I need, even if it's only about an acre of land. Just one minor negative, at least in my mind...
1. The gas tank is located in a bit of an awkward place under the front hood. Perhaps I'm just used to having the tank under the seat as it was on my old mower. Kind of miss that, and spilled quite a bit on my first shot filling up. Just need to be more careful...
However, as far as the mower itself goes overall, you will NOT be disappointed!
