Mulching:
Reflects a combination of evenness, which is how close the mowers came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how completely the mower distributed its clippings over the lawn's surface.

Bagging:
Denotes a combination of evenness, which is how close the mowers came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how much clippings the bag held before it filled or the chute clogged.

Side discharging:
A combination of evenness, which is how close the mowers came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how evenly clippings were dispersed from the side-discharge chute.

Bought this mower in May 2013, in July had it in the shop because it would not start. In July 2014 had it back in the shop would not start. This year 2015, July mowed twice then it would not start. I had had enough took it back to Lowes and received a full refund. The mower itself was built good but I'll never buy another Briggs and Stratton engine again.

bought on in April of 2014 and mower would not start by end of September! Returned to Lowes and after fighting with the manager was given another as the warranty had just expired on a refund option. Cut lawn twice last fall and got three weeks out of this one and it died again! A total piece of junk!

About six months of mowing. Love the one Lever wheel height adjustment and the mower does start with one pull, and the rear wheel traction is just what I needed. There, the good things stop. First, the blade adapter stripped, bought another adapter , it stripped, finally bought a third (total nearly $40.00) and glued it in...it stayed but when I will have to sharpen the blade I will have to break the glue and re-glue. Then, the silly plastic drive lever that attaches to the drive cable broke ($62.00). The mower wheels simply will not unlock when you stop forward and try to pull the mower backward. Tried all the tricks owners say they have used..no luck. I'm 77 years old, this is the worse experience I have had with a mower. I have had a Montgomery-Ward push mower that lasted 12 years, two Craftsman that lasted 6 and 7 years respectively, and a Troy-Built that I used for years before I gave it away. This HU775H is simply horrible and from the reports I have seen from owners, many people agree with me. Consumer's Reports needs to look at the forums before giving positive ratings on this beast. Honda will be my next try at a mower. I would go back to Craftsman, but our Sears closed down...
