- Is the seat still supportive? Can it be replaced or upgraded?
- Are the muffler, anti-vibration padding, and anti-slip steps working as originally designed, or do they need replacing?
- Are wheel hubs, critical steering linkage, tires, and related items structurally sound?
- Safety and Ergonomic Considerations-
- Is an adjustable or premium seat upgrade available?
- Do controls and foot pads have anti-vibration qualities?
- How easy is it to change attachments?
- How easy is it to remove the cab?
- Is the mower designed to operate on surfaces the city has to deal with including: hills, ditches, wet areas, etc.?
