Surprisingly Powerful
I was reluctant to buy a mower with less than a 190cc engine but I am very satisfied with the power and performance of the Honda 160cc engine. The duel hand controls and rear wheel drive work great on my uneven lawn. This mower bags pine needles, grass and leaves with ease. Highly recommended by this picky buyer.

Want To Love It
We purchased this mower because we heard good things about this brand. However, I will only mulch when I cut the grass. I noticed that the blade gets clogged while cutting and the blade seems to then get bogged down.

I have to clean the bottom of the mower once or twice each time I use it. I had a Snapper prior to this, and did not have that problem. I enjoy working in my yard, but this is very upsetting.

Wouldn't Recommend
I bought the mower a couple months ago. Every time I start it, I have to adjust the choke spring to keep it running. You can't pull the mower in reverse even with the wheels disengaged. It's a pain in the butt. And there is already a knocking noise starting that I haven't been able to pinpoint yet.

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
Theresa,
Hi Theresa,

Please take your mower to an authorized service center and any defects in materials or manufacturing will be repaired at no cost to you within the warranty period.

In regards to being able to pull the mower backwards, after using the self propelled feature, push the mower forward about 6 inches to unlock the wheels. This is a safety feature to keep the mower from being able to roll backwards unintentionally.

A Great Mower!!!
My original mower was a Toro "Personal Pace" mower that was around 4-5 years old. The "Personal Pace" feature "gave up the ghost". I do all my own mechanical work and I was amazed to discover that the Toro's "transmission" was made of plastic! Disassembly of the transmission revealed that the bevel gears was made of plastic and all the teeth had been ground off!! A neighbor let me use his Husqvarna HU700H and I was impressed, so purchased one.
Cons: Mulching Blade A Joke

Slopes Made Easy
Bought a house on just under 1/2 acre with a slope impossible to mow with my zero turn mower. This rear wheel self propelled mower handles it with ease. In fact, I mow the entire yard with it and have sold the zero turn. Mowing is work, so don"t expect the mower to take off and mow while you sit in the shade. I am a woman turning 74 this summer and I do recommend this mower.

Great Experience
Mower arrived on time,as advertised. It was well packaged and suffered no damage from shipping. I owned this same mower for 8 years and it still ran perfectly up to the point I hit a chunk of concrete and bent the output shaft.

Mowers direct had the best price with shipping that I found on the web. I have not run the mower yet but I have no doubts it will be a great performer.

Mower Is Great! Height Of Cut Adjustment Is Not
Mower runs greats, starts on first pull, but the lowest possible cut is a little to high! There are 8 settings on the mower, but mine only goes into 4 of them and setting number 4 would be equal to U S Open rough! any possible fix?

Disappointed
This replaced a 20 year old Snapper. The mower is built with plastics more than metal, and its durability is questionable. The mower cuts poorly with a rear bag, due to no support at the rear of the bag, lifting the front of the mower. The Rear larger wheels are not aligned with the front, they are set out, and that causes issues with mowing around curbing and obstacles.

Bag is limited due to the design and lack of support, causing you to have to empty the bag frequently to insure even... more

Can't Pull Mower In Reverse
Mower runs and works great. I started mowing after 10 min. I release drive handle let it move forward, then I can't pull in reverse to back up. I have noticed just a little grass between transmission and stop. If I clean it off, it seems to temporarily work for 10 more minutes. Does this in all cutting modes.

Frustrated With Lack Of Durability
I bought this mower late last summer and was very impressed with the power and "grab" that the self-propelling mechanism gave me. However, I accidentally hit a small ball that was in my yard, which immediately had a bad impact on my mower.

It broke through a weak plastic deflector shield under the main body of the mower. Unfortunately, behind the weak deflector shield are the drive gears, which are also encased in plastic.

The drive gear assembly was broken rendering my... more
