Cuts grass perfectly, and I love to use it. Just did my first break in oil change, and that process is ridiculous! Whoever designed the engine oil change process, should be out of a job, and shot on sight! I'm coming off of a 14 year old Simplicity Broadmoor, and the oil change process on that was a piece of cake. For those of us that like to maintain our machines, the screwball oil change process on this machine will make it difficult to maintain!!! The machine is built like a tank, and I hope it lasts for years to come.
