Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 147 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OK but needs some tips for buyers This mower out of box is great for someone with little mechanical skill. Pull the cord and go. The biggest tip i can give is use high octane gas and clean the bottom frequently. Low octane gas in this mower will cause your easy to start mower to turn into a worthless piece of metal on wheels. I had to drain the fuel line and use engine starter directly on the carborator to get this mower running after a couple months in the garage. I used 92 octane in a can from my local hardware store, changed the spark plug for good measure and cleaned the bottom out thoroughly . My mower is running fine again Not a bad mower for the price, just treat it like a princess because it will certainly act like one if you don't. March 22, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by quick replacement mower Light weight mower, starts with one pull. Easy to assemble right out of the box. The catch bag tends to be a pain to use, gets hooked on the pull cord when taking it off. But overall good mower for the price. August 26, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worked fine the first summer Bought one of these on 4/28/2013. Worked great that first summer. Tried starting it in April of 2014, had to exhaustively spray starter fluid to get it cranked the second summer. April of 2015, it won't start at all, it is actually still under warranty for another week, but the warranty people are saying there's a $60/hr charge if it is not a warrantied issue. So as of today it is on sale cheap on Craigslist, and will have to buy a new mower. This one lasted 2 summers. It's a disposable item, at a non-disposable price. I imagine the cheap one at Wal-Mart would have lasted longer. April 23, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Will not start after winter storage I bought this last year and loved it. It started fine, it was easy to push, and it was relatively quiet. It did stall on high grass sometimes but it never bothered me. I did some maintenance to make sure it would last over the winter by draining the gas out of the tank so it wouldn't varnish. We'll now it won't start after the winter and 45 minutes of pulling. Reviews on other sites like Briggs and Stratton, the company that makes this, gives it around a two star rating overall because others are having the exact same issue. The carburetor breaks or is clogged after one winter and requires complete disassembly, maintenance and reassembly and usually a whole new carb. Or take it to an authorized dealer to fix it via the 2 year warranty. I say no. I have never ow ed a machine that died like this after 5 uses and one winter storage. I will not replace a carb every year because it was shoddily built. ($40 carb for a $200 mower every year?). I bought a warranty too from home Depot so I will try to get it replaced, hopefully with a different machine, as soon as possible. March 26, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible purchase The mower broke down twice within 3 months of purchasing (no more than 8 uses). The second failure was outside of the manufacturer warranty, so fixing it involved out of pocket expenses. After the initial repair, the mower lasted the majority of the next season without problems, then the engine completely failed by the end of year two. Thow away after 2 seasons and $80 in repairs. I had been sold on this motor being highly durable with no maintanence, but my experience was quite the opposite. March 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Value for the Buck Easy start Briggs & Stratton engine that starts on first or second pull every time and simple as there's no primer bulb to press 8x or yank your guts out, etc. It's an economical mower that works just fine and does the job for smaller lawns. Bag is minimal size but if you're cutting weekly then I only empty it twice for my 3500 sq ft lawn. A good value for the buck but use non-ethanol gas as the instruction manual suggests; it will save your fuel lines. May 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A nice, easy starting mower Just used the mower for the first time (February) to pick up leaves in the yard, being disabled and with a bad knee this mower made it easy. Starts right up on the first pull and runs like a dream. The Bag is a little small, the leaves filled it right up, but grass clippings will be no problem with this size of bag. All I had to do to put it together was remove it from the box and unfold the handle, simple and easy. February 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great equipment The equipment is easy to assemble, has a bag that is easy to pull and empty, great high wheels, and very inexpensive... Great for a small yard, but not for a large yard because it's not self-propelled machine May 27, 2014
