A American Name Made In Japan....junk !
Started having issues after issues. The last one was the valve sit. It is steel pressed into aluminum. So when the motor warms up, the meddles expand to different sizes. And eventually it fails. A new head and cost to do the replacement is $362

Shocked that a Briggs engine would fail like... more

Don't Do It!!!!
Bought my mower on Aug. 16th and had it delivered to my home on the following Monday. Salesmen was fine. Used it twice in 2 wks and the third time it wouldn't start. Called the Monroe, NC store and was first asked if I bought the Maintenance Agreement. I did not as I think problems arise after (or may) 4 yrs for something new. I also told him that had nothing to do with anything since I just received it. I had issues with Home Depot when I did purchase a agreement. They did not stand by their... more
