Does anyone know anything about these mowers regarding their quality and reliability?

 First Choice Finish Mower

I just recently bought an 84" First Choice (rear discharge) finish mower.
It looks to be a very nice, well built mower.
I am still waiting on my grass to begin growing to see how it works.
I think I am going to like this mower just fine..

 First Choice Finish Mower

I bought a 72" First Choice Finishing Mower 2 years ago. It was noisy running from the first day. I kept it well greased (every 4 to 6 Hours) (Book calls for 20 hrs) The rear blade to pulley spindle failed completely and literally came apart in my hands the first time I mowed this year. I ordered one from my dealer (Hoye Parts, Inc) and about a week later it came from Smart Buy in NC. (Cost $350.00) I replaced it and the mower runs as quiet as any mower I've ever used. It mows level and neatly with good power consumption of the NH 1530 which I use to pull it. It's light weight which allows the use of a larger mower with smaller tractors.

Recommendations: IF you have a noisy journal or gear box, get it replaced immediately. If you need parts, expect to pay a premium price since it is made in Italy and parts come high and slow at best. Good Luck.

 First Choice Finish Mower

I'll need to check my mower out closer when I get a chance.
My new First Choice mower mows real nice but it my opinion runs noisy.
