    Great Mower at a good price! Good performance

    Customer review by Datira

    5.0 stars by Datira

    I bought this Murray riding mower with an 18.5 horse engine 2 days ago, and I just finished mowing over a half acre of high grass and I must say I'm really impressed! I have a 20 horse Sears Craftsman that I have been working on for the last month (while my grass has been growing) and finally gave up and decided to buy a new one. I did a lot of shopping and reviewing online and I decided to go with the Murray brand, and I'm glad I did. It is a great mower and well worth the price. It is a workhorse! Even though the engine is less horsepower that my craftsman it seems to have more "umph" to mow and my thick grass didn't even slow it down! Plus it has a couple of features I didn't even know about until I got it home, it has an adjustable seat that has a lever on the bottom that you pull up and it slides to where you want it, and it is higher in the back which is great because it is much more comfortable. It also came with mulching blades installed which is a great plus! I always use mulching blades and was going to buy some for it and when I started cutting with it I discovered it already had them! I would definitely recommend it!

    Buy this one! I bought one in 2003 and kept it surviced and stored in a garage. Aug. 8, 2014 it finally wore out the drive belt. replaced and it is like new again. I cannot believe it lasted this long, and with a new belt it is still going strong. Keep the oil changed and you should have just as much good luck as I have. To date...replaced one time the battery, and this year both blades, and last a new drive belt. Thats it. GREAT BUY!!! P.S. I mow 4 acres of lawn every week until Nov. Lots of clay and lawn is always growing, must mow every 6 days!
