Homeowner and small farmer Overall the Poulan Pro 540ZX Zero Turn mower has been used weekly to mow about 6 acres of farm lot grass fields including about 2 relatively flat acres and about 4 acres of barn access and roadway shoulders. Generally the 540ZX has given good service and has been easy to use although the weekly time required (personal use by a 70 year old farmer) for the mowing has taken about 4 hours on Fridays and an additional 3 to 4 hours on Saturday mornings. Biggest complaint thus far (approximately 280 hours on the 540ZX) has been the "breakage" of the aluminum fittings for the turning arms and now the "breakage" of aluminum spindle assembly for right hand blade of the machine, Very satisfied with the two years of ownership and weekly usage. Hopefully the "spindle assembly" will soon be delivered by "Southern States" co-op of Spencer, WV so the "mowing" may continue. Keep up the good work on the production of the Poulan Pro Zero Turn mowers. July 21, 2012
Excellent Mower This has to be the easiest mower I have used and I work in Parks and Recreation using commercial mowers! Very easy and quick responses when mowing and very comfortable. March 7, 2012
