Rated 2 out of 5Â by MDguy Only If The Mower Would Run A Entire Summer
When I purchased this mower it was advertised as guaranteed to start with a three year warranty. I purchased this mower in the summer of 2011. Summer of 2012 this mower has been serviced by an authorized service twice for failing to start. The last shop I took this mower to drain the gas tank, changed the oil, replaced the fuel lines, and placed in inline fuel filter on the mower. I got the mower home and started cutting grass and the mower shutoff and would not restart. The mower has been sitting in my shed every since. I will purchase a Honda next summer.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jafis Fine push lawn mower
This product is excellent in my opinion. I wanted a push lawn mower for the exercise. This model is surprisingly light in weight and easily maneuverable. The engine started on one pull right out of the box. Like the number of cutting height adjustments that are available. Good value.

Rated 2 out of 5 4th use won't start.
I bought this two months ago. I used it three times and now it won't start. I tried last night and no go after 20+ pulls. I tried this morning and it started right up. I shut it down, got dressed and tried to start again, happy that I could mow my lawn and nothing, won't start. I wish I could live in the 50's when things were built out of pride.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by LMG40014 Rent for 1 Summer if you can - Do Not Buy
When I was a teenager growing up in the 70s we had a Lawn Boy mower that was fantastic and always started and always cut well, even through thick grass. I purchased this model three years ago. I was enticed by the 3-year start guarantee.
The first year was fine. It always started and worked perfectly and I thought I had finally bought a reliable mower that would last. The previous mowers I bought were low-end and only worked well for a season or two.
Second year, it still worked all right but showed signs of sluggish starts. If I removed the air filter I could get it to start. That got me through the second season. Once started I would put fhe filter back on. Cleaning and replacing the filter had no effect on the engine.
Third year, did not want to start at all. Pull after pull after pull - and nothing. I took it to an expert small engine repair mechanic who used to work on jet plane engines. He said that Kohler now has some of their engines manufactured in China and the quality we remember from Lawn Boy just isn't there anymore. He said there is a flaw in the manufacturing process that blocks the fuel line from entering the engine after a period of time. It can be repaired, but he said the chances are the fuel line will get blocked again. That's exactly what happened with my mower. No more Lawn Boys (or mower engines made in China for me). Before buying check to see if the engine on the lawnmower you want was made in China or the USA.
Hopefully we consumers can reverse this trend.
