Comment:
The fuel system is too sensitive to ethanol problems. Five months of twice a week use on a 1/4 acre, the self propel stopped working and she would not run smoothly. The dealer adjusted the self propel for free but charged me $85 to clean and rebuild the fuel system. Then the lecture about using premium and a fuel stabilizer for ethanol problems. All is better now...This unit does not mulch as well as the last one. It leaves clumps at each pause or turn in the run. In spite of these minor problems...I would recommend this mower.
