Nice product, bad Home Depot service
It's a decent mower (although haven't been able to use it yet). It's an early father's day give as his Murray of 21 years has met It's day. He wanted another one and this is what I bought him. The issue is the assembly by Home Depot. Right after we picked it up we saw one of the plastic bezels incorrectly installed...we fixed that. when we got it home, several other assembly issues were found. Bumper was loose, had 2 bolts BARELY threaded in, loose wiring for battery system and barely connected to one post. Deck wheel nut held on by a thread, and many other issues. Have spent nearly 1.5 hours going over everything to fix the issues. And the forward and reverse drive needs adjustments as it takes some force to get it in gear..still have to fix that. Customer support just wants to transfer me around. Difficult to speak to people with no mechanical knowledge. NO I don't want to return it after fixing almost all the issues ourselves! This is an item of need to use now and not go through a lengthy process to get another that's poorly assembled or even worse off. I'm sure the bad day didn't happen on just this one! I'm a mechanic myself and know the talent pool out there not that great, but how do you have something leave like this? Not to mention the guy that drove it on our trailer didn't stop and jammed the bumper right under the trailer cross support. This may have been the last straw with Home Depot. I've included just one photo, but I should have taken one for every issue. Just wish I thought of that before fixing everything. And just to let everyone know, this one star is for Home Depot. I'm sure the mower will be fine.

      With the bagger now it’s complete
      It’s cheaper than the Troy Bilt neighborhood rider and much better have installed the bagger, Now it’s a completed unit to where I can bag my lawn all year or whatever needed.

          do not order delivery
          They leave it in the middle fo yiur driveway - even if you have a clear path to the garage- and they do not care that they block you in. Worst company ever. Very disappinted with Home Depot.

            Shame shame home Depot
            Ordered this mower and looks like they dunked it in saltwater. Engine and other bearings and pulleys were corroded badly. Can't say anything about the product itself. All I can say shame on home Depot for trying to sell me this mower at full retail price. I wouldn't even buy this mower with a $1000 discount on it.

              Incomplete
              There was rust and corrosion all over the metal. No manual. Towards the end of my first use, the steering wheel popped off. The bolt was missing.

                The Murray this one replaced lasted over 20 years. Appears this one is just as sturdy and has a drink holder. Hopefully this Brigs and Straton engine sees 20 years of service.

                  Nice looking, works as well as a $3400.00 riding mower. A lot of complaints about jerking violently when operating. Believe me those complainers do not know proper operation of a clutch, and or throttle control. You can’t go wrong here, price, quality, are at the top.

                  MURRY FOR THE WIN
                  Great mower! Gets the job done quickly and cleanly. Compact design will come in handy for tight winter storage.

                  It checked all the boxes for the price!
                  Just picked up my new MT200 and I wanted to get a few cuts done before I submitted a review. After spending a month or so looking it really came down to size, horse power, and ultimately price. Having a 19hp engine was a big part of my decision. The cut was uniform, the lower deck tracked straight and even plus it rides nice. The tractor isn’t too loud, turns on a dime and was perfect for my ¼ acre lot, it cut my lawn care time in half. Overall it just checked all the boxes for the price.

                    Impressive 42in Mower
                    Really impressed with the Murray 42in Lawn Mower! It cuts just fine and is super easy to operate. The look is very sleek as well. Hats off to Murray for this mower! I have nothing but great things to say about it.

                      Mow, Wow!
                      I recently purchased this Murray riding lawnmower and couldn't be happier with my decision. The mower is powerful, efficient on fuel, and easy to operate. The seat is comfortable and controls are intuitive. I also appreciate the added features such as "mow-in-reverse" and the ability to adjust the cutting height in 13 different positions (can't have too many!). Overall, this riding lawnmower has exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend it to anyone in the market.

                        Great riding lawnmower
                        This mower is excellent! It has cut my mow time down significantly! It even has a tight enough turning radius to maneuver around the sidewalks around our pool! I will definitely be recommending this mower to anyone!

                          One of the Best riding mowers I’ve used
                          This mower has been one of the best riding lawn mowers I have ever used. It comes in at a very affordable price for all the features that it has. It has 6 speed choices and you can cut all the way down to 1 in. I have a Bermuda so having the ability to get that Bermuda short with my riding mower is a huge plus. Has a great Briggs engine and has been an awesome pick up and I am stoked to continue to use it this spring.

                              Very Nice Entry Lawn Tractor
                              Finally got a tractor after having owned Craftsman tractors in the past. This one is similar but at a better price point. Compared to Craftsman it has slightly more HP and might have a slightly wider cutting path. Delivery was a day later than expected, however, it came ready to run no assembly required. The take-off in gear 3 and higher is very jumpy/touchy, but nothing I would dock points for, just be slow to get moving. Would recommend for anyone with a smaller yard (1 acre or less) to mow.

                                Mower is good for what it is. Battery was dead and will not hold a charge. Still waiting for HD to replace the batter.

                                A good machine overall. The deck wheels and cleanout port are a plus although a nozzle is not supplied. The instructions say not to shift speed range while moving so it has a tendency to wheelie and I'll try adjusting the clutch. The crankcase was overfilled and using the supplied oil draining trough makes a mess. Briggs has a hose kit to remedy that. Upon inspecting the spark plug before running I found it very sooty. I replaced it with a Champion Platinum. Added an hour meter to know when to change oil. The gas tank could be bigger but should be okay for an hour of cutting. The engine should run indefinitely with proper maintenance. I still have a similar engine from a 17 year old mower I replaced. Still ran fine.

                                It's been over 45 years since I used a riding lawnmower, the Murray was not hard to get used to.

                                Tractor itself is excellent for the price. Just what I was looking for. Nice to have a older, manual simple, machine again. As for delivery by home depot. That was appalling. I was hoping for new tractor on a crate I'd have to put the finishing assembly too. Instead I got a tractor blocking both by my cars in. They forgot the keys, the manuals and it was filthy and covered in bird poop. Like it sat outside there store all winter. Which it did. That was disappointing. Two hours of phone calls later then sent a worker to deliver me the keys and a manual. I cleaned it up myself. Had some scratches on it. As of now I'm living with it. Great tractor for price. Would jump on it if your looking for a cheap, old fashioned, manual machine. Works perfectly. I think alot of the reviews about the clutch is from people not experienced with older style manuals. I had no issues. Smooth. Cuts perfect. Plenty of power from the 13 hp. My last one was 2 cylinder 24hp. This 13hp feels more torque with the manual. Climbs hills and tows my yard cart with ease.

                                This is my first experience with a lawn tractor. I purchased 2.25 acres in December 2023 and by the time the home was completed I can tell you I had an enormous amount of overgrown yard work. Being a 68 year old female this tractor was the perfect size for me. It was delivered completely set up which I was very grateful for. Operating instructions were very straight forward and had it mastered in no time. Very easy to handle. I have put this through the ringer multiple times in my first month of owning and has come through like a trouper. The price was very good, I would have expected it to be more for the quality of the machine. I highly recommend this tractor. No regrets! Thanks Home Depot!
