Comment:
This is the best push mower I've ever used. It started on the first pull! The wheel adjustment is a breeze, one lever for the front wheels and a second for the rear. It is easy to handle. It has a tilted gas fill gap that minimizes spillage. We've used it about a dozen times. So far so good. Be careful with the wheel adjustment though. #3 wasn't three inches and scalped the lawn a bit. Still, great mower.

Comment:
Comes with exact amount of oil, gas stabilizer sample. Easy to assemble. The grass catcher bag assembly instructions are *wrong*. BE SURE TO PULL HANDLES UP OUT OF THE MOWER DECK 8. Use the black plastic knobs for this. I love that it's not self-proppeled which almost always breaks down and just makes the mower heavier and high maintenance. Gives a better haircut than my Scotts. USE GAS STABILIZER WHEN YOU STORE IT!
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I rely on these reviews for so many things, I thought it was time I write my own. I purchased this based on the CR recommendation and all the positive user reviews, and I agree with all of them. This is simply the best lawn mower I have ever owned, especially for the price. My previous mower was a John Deere self-propelled and it was very heavy, the self-propel mechanism always broke... This is a breath of fresh air. Lightweigt, mulches great, easy start, simple controls (that is, no control except pull the cord to start), side discharge works well too except don't use that much. It mulches so well I have yet to use the bag either. I would highly recommend this mower. No it's not built like a tank like the Deere, but that was always breaking and I couldn't beat this for the price.
