Let's see...the mower came fully assembled. I only had to open its shipping box, unfold the mower's handle, tighten two bolts on the handle "by hand," fill its tank with gasoline, and this baby was ready to go. It came full of oil. The mower has large rear wheels and is really lightweight. That makes it super easy to push, even on the "unsmooth" surface of my rural property where the mower is used. As a matter of fact, it moves even easier than my previous push mower, a self-propelled model! Speaking of "easy," it's easy to start, too. I've never even had to prime it before the first pull. My petite wife can simultaneously squeeze the start/run bar on the end of the mower's nice, long handle and pull the starter rope. One, maybe two fairly robust pulls, and it's running. I don't have to start the mower for her. Nice. (We're retirees, you see.) To these marvelous features, add the mower's ultra-low price, and Voila! You (well, er, I) have a superior mower.
Pros: Cuts Well, Easy to Store, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Great Engine, Light Weight
Bought mine refurbished, like someone else said it could have been cleaned up better . That should have probably been a red flag considering I've used it a total of 4 times. I actually bought it in April and now I get to buy a new one, it was used primarily for small areas. I did a maintenance tune up on it, and still nothing.
Worked fine for the first year I had it. Start of the second year it wouldn't start. Took it into a service center and they said the cheap plastic carburator was spitting out fuel and it would be $70 to replace because the warranty didn't cover carburators (since apparently they break so easily?)
Stay away. You get what you pay for.
The mower arrived without oil to add to the engine and without an owner's manual. Otherwise this light duty mower has performed as expected. The deck of other mowers I've owned of this design tend to crack around the wheel and/or engine mounts. It is not for rugged use.
