I purchased it, but on getting it was disappointed to find no list of places to get it serviced. So I called up DeWalt who I found has virtually nothing to do with this machine and was told to call MTD who actually make it. Not very comforting when thinking about warranty repair. Anyway MTD referred me to a dealer about 30 miles away. Then I called up them, and they had decided not to “ take this one on”. They suggested I try another dealer even further away. At that point I decided to take it right back to Home Depot who get five stars no questions asked for accepting the return. HOme depot is a great retailer in my view, but for a machine like this they should have a better system in place for service. Thus only 3 stars overall. The machine seems solid and well made but mower deck requires you to make four separate adjustments with pins. Seems very solid but an operational pain. Ground clearance is also not great at highest deck adjustment, so in trailering it I came very close to scraping base. Electric start is awesome, controls are ok. Going from forward to reverse very easy but getting to neutral is more difficult with hand control leavers. Have to take your hand off levers to pull into neutral. Finally I could not easily find how to unlock transmission to push without power, and actually Home Depot guy tried to help on that one too. Instructions unclear on that point.
