I really don't understand why people are complaining about how hard this mower is to put together. My 13 year old brother and I put this together in 30 minutes. It's narrow enough for me to fit between our flower beds, and lightweight enough for me to mow the gigantic bank out in front of my house. I could care less that it's simple and you have to propel it, if I want something that propels itself I'll just get on my riding mower.

this mower is great, lightweight, and easy to maneuver. i bought it this month because my murray from 2001 croaked on me and so far i have only used this once because most of the grass is still dormant here. the instructions was not in the box but it went together with a snap i didn't have no problems out of it i filled it with oil and gas and it started 1st pull with 3 primes. i recommend this mower to anyone wanting a basic lawnmower who has a small yard or needs something to trim around the house with.

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!

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.

Returned to store because parts were missing, or wrong for mower. Asked associate to open new box to make sure it had the right things, and it was exactly the same. Nuts that wouldn't fit with the bolts. Don't waist your time!!

  • A. No, you have to unscrew the nuts for all four weels and change the hole locaiton and re-tighten them. It's a pain, as it is very hard to tighten the nuts on each wheel.

  • A. There's a set of four offset bolt holes for wheel adjustment. First time threading the nut went very rough. I expect it will go easier second time - although I don't expect there to be a second time: max height is the ideal height for my yard....

  • 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.
