Simple, Yet Effective
The prior owners of the home we purchased left this mower in the shed when I asked about it they said we could keep it or toss it. I had very low expectations.

After adding gas, it cranked on the first pull. I'm one year into using it, and just now about to perform an annual maintenance on it. For this entire year, it has always started on the first pull, and chugged along admirably.

It's certainly not as fancy as my last mower, but it is reliable and seems to be rock solid considering... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

Use As A Trim Lawnmower Around Yard
Bought this mower to get easily around trees and shrubs, up and down steep hills (only to use as a trim mower where the tractor cannot get to). Simple to operate and very easy to push. You do not need the expense and complications of a self propelled mower with this one! Have a 1.4 acre yard with lots of trees and shrubs. This mower makes it a breeze to use the tractor for the main grassy areas.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Reliable, Simple To Use Easy To Start And Stop

3.5 Hp Briggs And Stratton Engine Unreliable
I've owned 3 mowers with the same 3.5 HP Briggs and Stratton Engine. After a year of use the prime bulbs fail and the diaphrams rot out making the engine run poorly. At first I thought the problem was from using gasoline w/ ethanol. But after using 100% gasoline (87 octane ) I realized it was not the fuel. I routinely perform maintenance (clean filter, inspect spark plug) and find that the spark plug fouled from unburned fuel (not oil). The carburetor is plastic stripped-down version of... more

Too Hard To Start
I bought this mower brand new from Lowes and have only been able to start it the first time I used it. Ever since then I've needed to have a neighbor start it for me. Everyone agrees that it shouldn't be so hard to start.

Granted I'm a woman but not a total weakling and have had other gas push mowers with cord starters and was always able to get them started. This lawn mower is a pain.

Now to add insult to injury I want to try using some starting fluid so I don't need to keep pestering my... more

Junk
used it two times and that was all. no hope for any warranty return. I was told that I must have ran over tree stumps used the wrong oil or gas etc. Without even knowing or checking.

Now the product is discontinued.

This Product Was Bad!!!!!!!!!!
I bought this machine a year ago. After using it once, it stopped turning on. I tried to take the machine for service and had to pay $25 (Lake Small Engine Repair in Somerset NJ) just to receive a call 3 days later saying that there was a problem with the engine.

There is only 30 warranty. THIS IS CRAZY!!!! BYE BYE $$$.......I might as well have thrown my money in the garbage. It would have saved me a trip to the store. Do these people care that they made such a terrible product!!!!! I am... more
