I got this mower on clearance. The seat was not attached so the manager gave us another ten percent off. The original cost was $1200 minus a clearance discount of $700 and the seat discount of $70 made it a final cost of $630.
The mower has been a real jewel of a machine. It is not a professional machine, but great for home use. A change of the oil, filter, gas filter, plug and machine will last for years. It is the same machine as name brands but you don't pay for the name.
