Great Value; My SPX
Your review: I purchased a SPX 46 with Briggs 22hp,in Spring 2012. $2000 delivered to my doorstep.Love it, and can give all a real review after 4 YEARS of use.Keep in mind, this is a LAWNMOWER, and that is really the intention of use. However, it is very powerful. I had the need to mow 4 acres of field un-cut for an entire season, and pathways with the SPX in addition to lawn cutting. ... it never failed, nor choked. I cut these areas with 1/2 the width of mower deck at slow ground speed. And went over the area twice in some spots to remove the small trees that were coming up too! never sharpened the blades either.
As far as maintenance in the time I have owned it... It has never been in the shop.
I have changed the oil three times , Air Filter once, fuel filter once, patched a tire, kept battery charged in winter, put a new set of blades on, cleaned spark plugs , and ,maybe hit a few of the grease fittings, but not the 3 fittings on the deck. (almost shameful). Always washed
Pros: Strong Engine / Thickness of Mower Deck
Cons: Sanpper could have at least splurged to have the tires rims paint in the traditional white color snapper is known for.
