I purchased a new five foot mower model 500. After cutting only five acres of grass I found the PTO drive line damaged.The bearings had fallen out of the universal joints (on both ends) of the drive shaft and the drive shaft twisted. The mower has a 90 day warranty but the manufacture will not return my messages and the distributor CHE of Ohio says its my fault. The same problem occured to at least one other mower sold at the same time.
Do not buy a Howse mower, you are asking for trouble.
