Rated 2.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very well built machine that can't cut Grass! The literature says it can cut saplings 2 inches in diameter. Maybe this is true, but it can't cut grass to save its' life and since I want to cut my field grass with it, it is of no use to me. I had to make many passes at less than 2 mph to actually cut some grass and evan at its' lowest setting (big hassle) it is still too high to pass fire inspection. By having to make so many passes, all I ended up doing was bending most of the grass down instead of cutting it. I can do that for free! I don't need a $2,700 machine to do that. So, if you want an expensive, well made, heavy duty grass bender, this is your machine. May 2, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Some Unit Specifications are not what is advertised. Cutting height adjustments are NOT 2.5--07 inches as advertised. They are around 3 inches and you need a jack to raise the unit and remove 8 good size bolts (2 at each corner). Secondly, the unit's advertised weight is NOT 580 pounds, it is actually close to 800 pounds. My ATV must be only around 400 pounds--might be a towing challenge as I live on rolling hills. The manual is wofully inadequate. You need to call Swisher to get a "DIY" description for changing the cutting height and/or replacing the belt. On a more positive note, it DOES have a screw on Oil Filter giving it the ability to use on greater slopes. I was able to use the mower for about 1-2 hours to cut down the dead prairie grass on my property. Gotta say that when I was towing, it felt like you really had something back there. The engine just purred (it started on the third attempt). I can't give the mower five stars dut to the limited use; however, I forsee no problems cutting but am concerned about the real weight factor. On certain slopes, the mower will pull me and the ATV down. Just need to avoid those areas. Oh, by the way. When you purchase a 12V battery, if you get the terminal locations wrong, the positive cable will not reach the battery. July 2, 2013
