This is a lawn tractor not a lawn mower. If you understand that you will be fine. The jd lawn mowers at lowes are not of this quality. Even with this being 40 years old it's far superior to a new tractor. It has a cast iron engine block not aluminum. Has a 3/16" steel frame not stamped sheet metal. Every moving part on this tractor has zerk fittings. New ones do not.
