Had mine 6 months hard worker easy to operate

Powerful. Reliable. Fast!
Purchased this to maintain a 1.2 Acre property, and now have 11 hours on the unit to give a detailed honest review;

Plenty of power, and hasn't skipped a beat, Kawasaki motor has the reliability and power together. the ability to mow whilst in reverse is a huge bonus as not all new mowers allow this, i have not had any issues yet except for the armrest fading and starting to decay, but with this aside its a strong and durable unit.

Great value mower, Easy to use easy to understand very comfortable for you to operate
First ever ride on looked at others but had a soft spot for Rover after having 21-year-old MTD 21 inch push mower that I needed to replace .
The 2020 lawn king18/42 is a great value mower with Kawasaki motor, and is really like a cub cadet X2 in specs. Having put it to use I have found it easy to get used to effortless tomato and to get a great finish the trick is simply should be prepared to adjust the deck cutting height to get the sweet spot. Well my head has so many good features electric PTO service items are accessible finishes good reverse mowing easy to do, comfortable seat and controls easy to store. Parts seem a bit slow at this time understandably perhaps but a bumper bar ordered with the unit is still to arrive a month later. Good helpful dealer at Wacol.

No Bumper? Drives and Cuts Well
Purchased as I was after the Kawasaki Engine, Electric PTO is handy no manual blade engagement. Would be nice if this unit came with a bumper.
