Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by answerman1944 drive speed is not variable; drive wheels are not alighned
The mower does not push well, the drive wheels don't want to turn unless the drive mechanism is engaged. One feature I wanted, variable speed, doesn't work. There is only one speed, too fast for me. The front wheels, drive wheels, are tipped to the side. Maybe that is why it doesn't push easily. The mower is obviously well equipped for the price. It starts vary easily. I haven't tried the electric start yet. I am going to see if I can get the drive wheels repaired.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Slops I love the electric start!
When I moved into a new home, I realized I needed a lawn mower. After checking for one on the Home Depot website I found a mower that fit my budget and had the features I was looking for: electric start and self-propelled. This mower has been a dream. It is easy to use and does an excellent job of mowing my lawn. The bagging accessory was easy to use and helped me achieve a clean-cut lawn.
This has been a perfect mower for my lawn care needs.

The mulching is great if you don't have much to mow. I'm currently mowing once a week due to my work schedule and it could definitely use more often, but hoping after the rainy season with the grass not growing as fast it will work better. The self propelled and speed are adequate. Love the key start and water cleaning attachment. Charged the battery when I first got it and haven't needed to recharge or use the pull rope, even with at least a dozen times of turning it on. Does not seem to use more gas considering it covers a greater area in a shorter amount of time versus my previous mower.
On the negative there is a problem with the left side handle where it does not stay in place no matter how hard I tighten the knob. Just seems the groove is too minor to keep the handle in place. And the shield seems to come off very easy. But all in all a great mower for the price.
I'm an older woman and would definitely recommend this because of how easy it is to use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sage13 This is a good product for small lawns.
The Electric Start is great. One turn of the key and the mower was ready for action. Front Wheel Drive did not function as well as I expected. I ended up doing a lot of pushing which was very difficult.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mousie1117 Very easy to use
My son uses the mower like once a week, he loves it. I tried it and was amazed at how the self propelled front wheels move the mover, I can do the grass myself with little effort on my part!

The electric start is great. The height adjustment is easy and the deck cleaning option with you garden hose is awesome!

Had this mower for 33 days and the grass shute plastic tabs broke off, and the trim plate between the handle bars got a big crack in it. So I called Poulan custermer service thinking they woould just send me replacement parts, that I could put on myself. They want me to take the whole mower to a service center,because it was over 30 days (3 days past 30) I think this is way too much for me to do for a couple plastic parts.A bigger repair job I would understand their actions to service it. Now I have to see if it will fit in my car and drive to the repair center.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Crinket Don't waste your time and money
I bought this lawn mower online. It was on sale so I figured I'd give it a shot. Well I open the box and the front wheels were bent at an angle. I called and was offered a replacement. I get the next one and the rear wheels are bent and the front wheels don't even move. So now this one has to go back as well. Not worth the time and aggravation for a low quality mower with a higher price tag. Last time I'll buy something like this online, I'd rather see it in person at the store. At least HD was understanding and can get these picked up and out of my garage.
