Poulan Pro PBGT26H54
Reliable, and affordable.
Never had a problem in my 3 years ownership.
Only had to do the normal maintenance of oil changes, oil/air filter changes, and blade sharpening.
Follow the owners manual for service schedule, and your tractor will last a long time.
Highly recommended. I guess if I neglected the maintenance, it would not be reliable.
