Sarlow 1026SS walk behind mower

"Nice mower, cuts well, and the smooth deck design doesn't accumulate grass clippings underneath making after job clean-up unnecessary for the most part. The 11.5 HP engine is a real powerhouse, and this baby goes through high grass like cutting hot butter.
Ordered my Sarlo 1026SS in September, 2012. However, it appears Sarlo is no longer building these mowers with rear steel wheels-n-spokes as noted in Northern's product description. The 1026SS I received has molded black plastic type rear wheels, almost identical to those pictured on the smaller 24" Sarlo model WX24SP, Northern item number 176101. Not that it is a serious disadvantage, and the plastic type rear wheels may be easier to maintain than their steel wheel / steel spoked counterparts in the long run. But the rear wheel's bearings appear to be of low quality as they get very sloppy after just a 45 minute mowing job. I've had to tighten up the rear axles to correct for bearing slop after each mowing job, and I've only used the mower for a total of 4 mowing jobs to date. Time will tell, but other than the rear wheel bearings I believe this mower will last for a good many years."

"does big jobs, sturdy good power, ok in tall weeds, good for home owner with 1 acre or less but not bad for larger lawns or wild areas around home, easy to load with the big wheels"
