Comment:
This is the worst lawn mower I have ever owned. I have a garden home and I only have to cut a very small back yard. This mower has never worked since day one. Home Depot said take it to a repair shop. Did that and still does not work properly. Has only cut a very small back yard maybe 12 to 15 times. Going to throw it away and buy something else. Too much trouble.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Note: I gave mine to my daughter last year after spending $140 to repair parts of it. The ignition had to be replaced. Now this season cannot get started, may be ignittion again. Not putting more money into it, will scrap it out. <br />One note on other comments. My mech told me to make sure I run the gas out of it before storing. DO NOT use Stabilizers. Why. The new gas has ehtanol in it. Stablilizers brake down after 45 days when added to ethanol gas. Was told to either run all the gas out or fill it up with premium gas at the end of the year.
