Comment:
Just like Consumer Reports said, this mower is top of the line in performance. I do have a problem with starting the engine when it's cold. It will take 4-6 pulls to start. I can't figure out just why. After the first start, one pull only.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
In general, the mower is easy to use, starts easily, does a decent job of cutting the grass, and is a good value. However, I have some criticisms: The wheel height adjustment is only in one inch increments, so fine tuning the cutting height is not an option. Beware: Start with a high setting and work your way down - my first pass at three inches scalded the grass! I've also found the grass catcher to be difficult to reinstall, and it is rather small so it needs to be emptied regularly. And lastly, the design of the chute closure for the bag is such that it holds clippings in a recess, and dumps a pretty significant amount of clippings when you remove the catcher!
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

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.
