very nice mower. It is easy to use and does a great job. The my stride is great, walk at your own speed with no extra effort. Good price and good features. Would recommend.
I have an old Craftsman mower that I loved. It is about 22 years old and all parts are original. I have had a terrible time with it starting, though, and while I thought about fixing it, I figured I should just get a new mower. I bought this one and I am regretting it. There is so much plastic on this, where my other mower had metal. The worst thing is the awkward design of the handlebar area. The orange "my stride" mechanism is so awkward it is ridiculous. I have to hold the orange bar and the metal bar that allows it to run with my left hand and my right hand is on the actual bar to push and steer! The orange "My stride" bar is loose and flimsy. My other mower had a nice strong lever that I would push up to engage and leave it alone, and off I went. Super easy. This one requires having your hands on two different bars making it extremely awkward. I should have just fixed my old Craftsman.
Easy to move and cuts very well
The instructions say "Both levers must be in the same position." The back is then 1/2 inch higher than the front. This makes for an uneven cut and the yard is a mess!
I ordered this so I could have a friend mow my lawn. He has had no complaints about how it starts or works. It seems to not need to be filled with gas a lot.
Bought this to replace a Husqvarna mower and I am very happy with it. My wife has used it several times and she is also quite happy with it. It steers well and cuts without tearing.
