This is the worst mower I have ever purchased.

To begin with, the correct parts are not included. Instead of returning it to the store, I purchased the correct parts and put the mower together. This model has no wheel adjustments. I have never seen one constructed this cheaply. On the box it touts that there are four cutting heights which is misleading. There are four holes on each wheel location and you can take your pick. Every time you would want to change the wheel height, you have to take all four wheels off and reinstall them. I positioned the wheels to drop the mower down as far as possible. Having not mowed my lawn for two weeks, the grass seriously needed cut. After mowing a strip, I could not even tell I had been over the grass except for the tracks the wheels left. Since I have used it, I cannot now take it back which is what I wish I had done when I discovered the parts were missing. Do not waste your money on this mower. I am going to Lowe's to buy another mower.

A solid, economical mower, w/ a simple design

The mower is certainly worth the money. As for pros, the mower is LIGHT (I love that), has a very gas efficient engine, and simply cuts well. I like the simple, economical design; there isn't all this extra junk that weighs down the mower and creates the opportunity for more things to breakdown. Installation went very well; it was easy and straight forward; took no more than 30 min. Also, the engine turns on very easily. Here goes the cons: 1. NO choke, NO automatic adjustment for wheel height; you have to remove the bolts each time. Speaking of which, the bolts that came with my mower would go on REALLY tight (had a unique design); so I would recommend using your own since you'll be adjusting the wheel height. Also, it appears that for the first several minutes that the mower is own, lifting it, or going up an incline causes the engine to choke, perhaps due to a lack of gas feeding into the engine. Also, tilting the mower over on its side with the exhaust causes gas to leak out, so avoid that. So far I've mowed several times, and the mower has been running great. Note: it's important to keep the blade nice in sharp because the engine isn't that strong.

Ok Lawn Mower - Quality Not Great

Customer review by namerandom

I bought this lawn mower and after getting it together I put oil in it and found out that there was a leak in the oil tank. After draining the oil I took it back to Wal-Mart and exchanged it. I brought the second one home and set it up and found that oil was not included - oil was included in the first one. I had to go back to the store and buy oil. The second mower also had obviously been put together and returned because it had scratches of green paint (it's a grey mower) on the base and the nuts had paint stripped off. But it worked well and cut the small part of the lawn that I needed it for without a problem. I agree with other reviewers that this was a little intense to put together. It wasn't horrible and only took about fifteen minutes, but I think it required more tools than the average person buying a cheap lawn mower will have around the house and the directions had diagrams that were backwards and included a lot of instructions for other models. I would not try to put this together without using the correct tools.

Sorry, no matter what others may post/review here, mine and other's experiences seem similiar. IF you are one the purchasers of this mower and had little to no problems assembling it, then great. I bought mine 06/15/2012, and it sits in my garage, probably waiting to be returned. Cannot get the wheels bolted on; I would strip the hex bolt if I continue to to try to "force" it to turn w/ the wheel screw. Agreed w/ one reviewer; very confusing instructions, combining several models in one manual. WHAT?? Parts do not seem to fit together, and I suspect some parts may be missing. IF an option was to buy an already assembled mower, then sure, great, I'd take it/buy it, etc. But having to assemble this? Those wheels have thwarted my enthusiam, and if I have any further issues, it goes back. Dissapointed, as I was looking forward to using it. Hmm...Murray Co. wonder how many customer complaints you've received on this model. Overall, I would not recommend this one, unless it was already assembled, or you had the option of having it put together by a employee.

I did not have a problem putting this mower together. Then again I did look at all the manuals before I started. In one of the smaller ones it gave instructions on putting it together. Granted it depended on which model you had, but was not hard to figure out...that is if you stopped to think about it and read the manual. The mower was impressive and was just what I needed, simple and cut grass....even wet grass. Which I done on purpose just to test it out. On my mower I do have to press the primer about 6 times for it to start, but when it does I have a hard time bogging it down. If you want a great basic mower grab one. I am happy I did. Take Care!

  • A. Nope. It requires you to remove the bolts securing the wheel to the metal frame. I would recommend using your own bolts (that's what I did) when installing the wheels because for some reason the bolts provided w/ the mower go on REALLY tight. On average it takes me 5 min to adjust all the wheels.
