Fantastic Piece of Kit.
Truly magnificent service from MowDirect to begin with. This Lawnflite 420 XT-S Lawn Tractor was delivered on a pallet, fully assembled and ready to go. Started at the 1st twist of the key, and I've been mowing ever since.
The controls are very simple, with a combined brake and clutch the only pedal to use. There is a hand throttle, and the gears are pre selected through the switch just under the steering wheel . The 5 cutting heights are easily selected on the right hand side whilst driving, as is the cutting blade PTO lever. Forward/Reverse and Neutral is on the left hand side, and easy to reach and use.
A nice and tight turning circle makes for easy edging. I have only used the machine in my paddocks on the highest cutter setting, as the grass is about 3 feet high, and it handles this with ease, along with the associated nettles and thistles. Handles sloping ground with ease as well.
I particularly like the fact that most of the panels are made of metal, unlike some makes, and the tractor seems very robust. I bought the mulching kit as well, but haven't used it as yet.
To sum up, I looked at a lot of machines before this purchase, and am entirely pleased with this Lawnflite 420 XT-S Lawn Tractor.
Thank you to all at MowDirect.
