Comment:
This mower was purchased at my local Home Depot after researching the different reviews on the consumer reports site. The mower did great out of the box. On the second cut it would not start. took back to HD , they could not get it to start. Exchanged for another one, same exact proble. I bought a Toro it's awesome!!
