DON"T do It.
on April 20, 2015
Finally gave up on this piece of junk after four years of constant maintenance. In that time span I replaced both steering tie rods, two brake cables,
2 front tires, a bracket for the deck height adjustment, and numerous other small parts. The friction drive finally gave out, so this one was kicked to to curb. Someone with no mechanical skills would have given up after the first year as the authorized repair facilities will not touch them. I have owned four RER mowers over a thirty year span, having sold two of then that were running fine. This one is by far the worst of the lot. Finally, this mower is dangerous if the steering fails, as you will have no directional control until you can step on the brake. If you are in a sharp turn at a higher speed setting, you could be thrown off. If you are interested, I finally purchased a Troy-built 30 inch cut and the build quality is excellent. No problems so far after 6 months use. IMO Amazon should discontinue the sale of this item.
