Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well built mower. I am very pleased with this mower. It has the power to cut thick grass and never boggs down. I use it to cut 18 acres in the mountains of NC. Pulls easily over ruff hills and the availablity of the offset settings make it easy to cut near fence lines without getting into a dangerous cituation. It is well built and I expect it to last many years. May 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is what a trail mower should be This is a greatly improved trail mower, I had purchased one three or four years earlier. It did not have all the features of this one. It is so easy to reach back and start up this powerful trail mower, then engage blades and let it do the work. It took my moderate sized fields- ( 3-4 acres) to a manageable height in no time. I had a friend watch in amazement at the power of this mower. I hope to be towing this around for a long time. October 6, 2013

Rated 1 out of 5 by Swisher Mower :( At this point I will be trailering this to the local HD for return. Home Depot did a great job of getting the mower to me quickly. I ordered on a Saturday over the 4th weekend and had it by Wednesday. The mower-a whole different story. I love and want to buy American when I can. To begin there were mixed reviews on this so I decided to take a chance. The directions from Swisher are confusing at best. I did the basic assembly that was required per the manual. I hunted down a battery that would fit. Proceeded to follow the initial startup directions. Engine backfired but started. Then during the warm up of the belt (5 minutes) it just shut off at like 4 minutes and will not start again. This was the 1st full day with it. Called Briggs they say it sounds electrical so its a Swisher issue. I will call Swisher this morning but I bet they will say its a Briggs issue. So unfortunately it will more than likely be a HD issue because I will be dropping it off for a refund tonight if Swisher/Briggs can't help. As usual Home Depot I have no issues with but so far Swisher customer service has been lacking at best. I will update this review if and when either stand behind their products. July 11, 2014
