I've had and used my mower for a few months. It surged right from the beginning - brand new out of the box. The mower sounds like it's running out of fuel all the time. It cuts the grass just fine.

Answer: 
These engines need ethanol-free fuel. Watch this video on how to clean out the system and restore it to new, then just use ethanol-free fuel.

Answer: 
Three possibilities?
It is usually the float. Take off the air filter cover and expose the carburetor. Run the engine and see if the mechanisms move or shake a bit. Tighten or replace.
It maybe the primer? Pump it the recommended times.
The spark plug gap may be off?

Answer: 
Hello - Typically small air cooled engines will start to surge when the fuel starts to become stale. We recommend emptying the fuel tank and filling with fresh fuel, or with 4-cycle TruFuel (grey can). If the problem persists then we recommend contacting your local service center. Thank you for your question.

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 389 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reliable, Powerful and Perfect! My past 2 lawnmowers have been bigger and more powerful however they were all purchased used from craigslist and I never got more than 2 seasons out of them despite my attempts at maintenance. I promised myself that the next one would be purchased new and this lawnmower has put everything I've used previously to shame. It was incredibly easy to set up, starts every time on the first pull and powers though tall and/or wet grass that my past mowers would stall out in constantly. Looking forward to, with proper upkeep, having this Briggs & Stratton for a long time. July 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by exactly as described/advertised Straight out of the box, assembly was less than 5 minutes: attach discharge chute with two carriage bolts and wingnuts. Didn't use included oil, chose mobile 1. Added gas and slowly as possible pulled starter rope just to distribute oil in engine. Never got through one "very slow" pull as the engine started. Let it run a minute, shut it off then restarted. It started as easy as the first time. Probably the best "cheap" purchase ever. Cut the entire yard and saved $40 already in yard man cost. Just three more times and my return on investment is positive.The only reason I rated it 4 on ease of use is that the handle is designed for someone a bit shorter. My back got tired due to slightly bending over while in use. Otherwise I couldn't be happier with the purchase. September 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by perfect size it fit perfect for my yard, standard house lot size, front and back yard and for that price you cant go wrong if you buy the extended 2 year warranty. easy to use, minimum storage space and kids can help too. September 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst lawn mower ever! Total waste of my time and money. The first one I bought wouldn't even start right out of the box. I first called the manufacturer and I was on hold for ten minutes until I just hung up and returned it to the store. Stupid me, bought the same lawn mower. It lasted for about six cuttings on a VERY small yard and then crapped out on me. Employees at home depot gave me a hassle regarding returning it, but finally gave in and I received store credit. Buying this mower was a plague on my life. I should have spent a few extra dollars to buy a higher quality mower. I know in the future I will never be buying ANYTHING from MTD. July 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lawn mower Small but powerful. Easy storage. Great for one acre yards. September 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't purchase I bought this mower eight weeks ago, and it doesn't run properly. It surges, and appears to have an issue with the fuel to air ratio. I took it back to Home Depot to have it checked out, and they charged me $20, and said it was low on oil even though the mower was new and I used the oil pack provided by the manufacturer. HD never addressed the surging issue, so I am stuck with it. My advice would be to spend a little more and get a better mower. September 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by could not get mower started! After putting all together, tried to start the mower, and it simply would not start. Gave one star for price, otherwise worthless. Returned for full refund. September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just right Just right for the price and the size. I have a standard house lot size, front and back yard and this mower is appropriate for it. The price is worth it. I recommend the extended warranty on it. Worry free. It fit almost anywhere and the best thing kids can help with it. September 6, 2016
