Poulan XT 30 Inch Deck 12.5 HP Briggs & Stratton 6 Speed Tractor
For the money this is one of the best riding mowers I've got my hands on. So far I had this mower for 8 months with no problems. As I am 5'8, having an adjustable seat is great. It's 30" deck allows me to cut a good 90%-95% of my yard of the size of a 1/3 of an acre. Usually a full tank allows me to mow the lawn twice. If I am really being detailed and careful when mowing, getting into every corner and striving for leaving everything as perfect as I can, I still have gas left.
The mower sports a 12.5hp engine is more than enough for cutting any yard under 1 acre in a relatively short amount of time. This mower also includes one cup-holder which is enough to keep you cool with your favorite drink while you mow away in the summers. Having a marker to remind me where I want the blade to be set is also a nice feature.
The mowers handling on uneven terrains like inclines and small hills is decent, but for the price it's not bad at all. It's turn radius is also not the greatest but decent enough to let me cut into corners just fine. The mower also comes with a backing system.
And lastly accessibility to components like air filter, battery, and oil makes this mower a winner for tough economical times. This would easily turn anyone still using a push mower into a rider without breaking their bank or their backs.Pros:
-No bagger available
-Clutch too stiffRating: 4 out of 5 stars
