Murray Select 15.5 HP 42" Ride on mower
We currently have a Murray Select 15.5 HP 42" 6 speed ride on mower. It is very comfortable and gets the job done.
We had to replace the blades after mowing some of the heavier brush in the far back lawn but it runs like a champ. The ride is smooth and the cut is great.
This mower is excellent for a large yard. It handles extremely well and gets in close around trees and edges. Our lawn has hills and bumps and it handles all of it with ease.
I would recommend this mower based on cost and performance. We have fields behind our house and it has cut through heavy ground cover and is our current favorite. There are also headlights for evening or early morning mowing that are very convenient.
The chute adjustment could be better. I've had to modify mine by drilling a hole in the chute and running a rope through it.
The deck is very sturdy as well. It has a safety cut off switch that is activated through the seat. Our son has often mowed the front lawn and the safety features make it possible for him to be able to mow without worry of an accident.
The 6 speed feature is perfect for a nice slow mow of the lawn or for a quick trim when there us not much time available for mowing. Our lawn always looks fresh and green and we do not have to rake.
It nicely mulches the grass as it sends it out the chute and it does not leave big clumps of cut grass all over the lawn.
I would rate the Murray Select a 9 out of 10. It is well worth the investment and even has a cup holder.
We left it parked out in the rain and even in the snow and it started right up with no problems.
