I'm very happy with my Beast 48" zero turn mower....
I'm very happy with my Beast 48" zero turn mower. I've used riding mowers for over 40 years and this is the best one I've ever had. Wasn't sure if I should go this big and expensive but my son in law convinced me to and I am sure glad I listened to him. Once you get on and practice for a few minutes you see how easy it is to use. Once I got the hang of steering and driving it, I engaged the blade. Easy enough for my wife to use. The 2 "arms" are your steering wheel and very different from all my previous mowers so I wasn't sure about that but I'm so glad I didn't hesitate to make this purchase. With Home Depot offering a 24 month payment plan for 0% interest, it is very affordable.
