This mower starts effortlessly. It works well and is a pleasure to use. But before you buy it you should be aware that essentially the same mower, sold under the Troy-Bilt name, is available from ****** for substantially less money. Obviously Troy-Bilt manufactured this for Sears. I wish I had noticed that before buying it.
I got this mower as a gift for my birthday; I thought itwas going to be awesome.... But I have had issues with this mower since day one! When it runs, it work perfectly, that WHEN it runs. It is temperamental, it will start up and run fine then when I stop to empty the grass it doesn't want to start, push button or pull start. I have wasted hours on end trying to get this thing to start consistently. The engine is a B&S made in the USA and you would think it'd be good; but you'd be wrong. Every other of the many B&S engines I have had over the years has never given me a 10th of the trouble this one has since the first day. Maybe next time I buy a mower with a Honda engine, B&S has gone to junk!
Has all the features you could want.
Works great out of the box. Assembly was easy.
This machine works like a charm. The assembly was very painless.
Sears sent a cheap mower. Told me to return it to the store if I wanted a refund. CUSTOMER SERVICE HUNG UP ON ME. NO MORE SHOPPING AT SEARS FOR ME!
Bought mine about one year ago. Starts nice and easy, no rope to pull. Cuts and cleans nicely. I use the bag most of the time as I have pine needles to pick up. Works great. No problem what so ever with this mower. Great value. Plus, it pulls you along. Nice and easy. Wife likes it also.
