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.
How long have you owned it:

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.
