Last year I bought a new but cheap mower. Took forever to put together, parts broke, bla bla. This year it wouldn't start. Bought this. Arrived in 1 day. Surprised that setup took all of 10 minutes. Had to check instructions 3 times to reassure myself. After putting in oil and gas....now this is the awesome part....it started on the very first freaking pull. WOW. FWD took a bit of getting used to. Lawn was done in half the time and I wasn't heaving like Homer Simpson. Very happy with the results. And this from a guy who hates yard work.
Mower worked well for one season. Stored over winter and the PLASTIC carburetor gummed up the jets and it will not start. 2 year warranty is useless (and extremely difficult to nail down a place to take it to) as they state it is a fuel problem. Ethanol gas kills the cheap plastic carb. even when using less than 10% ethanol. I will never buy another mower that has a plastic carburetor and recommend that you avoid them, as well. This engine is designed to fail. VERY disappointed in Briggs & Stratton.
I paid for this item since 1/18/2019 and still no delivery nothing is being said emailed sent stating deliver will be done in 7 to 10 business days and still no tracking number no delivery.. it is now 2/5/2019 what is the holdup. Very disappointed.
I supposed to get the Freecash or ShopYourWay points equivalent to the item price as listed on the Special offer on Oct 27, 2018, but didn't receive. Sears advertised one thing by listing in Special offer but didn't fulfilled. The main reason I bought this item paying the full price because I supposed to get Freecash/shop your way points/cashback equivalent to the item price as said in Special Offers on Oct 27, 2018, but didn't received.
Mower always smoked from date I bought it. Yesterday I got it out to mow and smoked really bad then died. Muffler was full of oil. Spitting oil from exhaust. Starts then foils the plug. I suspect the no oil change design.
