Poulan Pro 301ZX 5 5 1 1
This mower is awsome! I'm 69, have poor health, and broke my back last October. I can no longer walk behind my old self-propelled 24" push mower, so my wife encouraged me to buy a riding machine. The Poulan Pro 301ZX was the only one I could find that met my needs. It cuts narrow enough for me to fit between trees, bushes and fences on my property. It is powerful enough to cut deep, thick grass without lugging the motor down, yet is small enough to fit into my already-crowded garage. Oh yeah, it will pop a wheely too! April 30, 2013
