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.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This mower starts easily with one pull. It is the easiest-starting push mower I've ever owned. No priming is required. The cutting height is easily adjusted with one control for the front and one for the back (not separate controls for each wheel); these operate smoothly. The handle grip has a nice feel. It has a clean-out port on the deck for attaching a garden hose with a quick-release fitting; the fitting is plastic and looks like it will break easily; this feature strikes me as gimmicky (but I have not tried it yet). The front of the mower has a plastic handle-grip which is convenient for loading the mower into a pick-up; however, the trade-off is that you sacrifice 2.5 of clearance in pushing the mower close up to a tree or other edge. So, you might consider this feature a gimmick, too. The 159cc engine is a little larger than some of the competition's, but it still feels a bit underpowered in high, slightly wet grass. On the other hand, in high, slightly wet grass I get an even cut with no clumps in mulching mode. There is a side-mounted oil drain plug below the dipstick, close down to the top of the deck; however, it may be easier (and less messy) to remove oil with a siphon pump through the dipstick opening.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
So far so good... this mower gets the job done for sure. I'm glad I took a look at consumer reports on this one... I bought this mower to help my grandparents mow their lawn... and i must say.. I am pleased! Cuts evenly, takes barely any gas and mowed the entire lawn without having to refill, started up on the first pull as well! You will not be dissapointed. The only bad thing about this mower is the smart jet deckwash system... it tends to leak out of the top and not clean all that well. This feature is just a perk for me and doesnt matter much, but I rather not use it due to the leaks. Other than that, I am pleased!
