Easy to Push & Steer
Requires Constant Maintenance
I bought this model, put it together carefully, filled it with out and clean gas with a stablizer. It started after a couple of pulls and I noticed that the housing was all plastic so that when you are starting it you can hear the plastic rubbing, definitely not a sound of quality.<br /><br />I used the mower for about 30 minutes and it cut great, was very easy to adjust the height of the cut and overall I was please.<br /><br />After not using it for a couple of weeks, I started it and it ran for a few minutes and then it shut off. 3-4 pulls later and nothing. I removed the air filter and checked the automatic choke and pulled it again. I started to run then stopped. 3-4 pulls again and nothing. I let it sit for a while, then pulled it once and it started to run, then stopped. Again I let it sit for a few minutes and tried starting one last time. I never got the mower running again and there is no primer bulb like other motors and no manual choke. I ended up taking it back for a refund. What a piece of junk. I think that if yard machine uses a different motor (Honda or Kohler) it would be a much better machine.
