    I bought a 42" Murray Riding mower with Auto Drive (Hydro transmission), from Wal-Mart quite a few years ago, (over 10 years), and it still performs well, but ... If you need common replacement parts, such as Belts, (not engine) although Wal-Mart has started stocking these parts for the newer mowers, you may have a hard time finding the exact belt needed to properly replace the original part on an older model. (as time goes by) If you should purchase a new mower, I would recommend you should immediately record the Description, (w/model number), such as the following info: (Abbreviated description found as you search the web) Murray 42" S/D - L/T - 14.5 B&S IC OHV – HYDRO Model #42913X5B (Actual meaning of the abbreviated description) Murray 42"cut side discharge - lawn tractor - 14.5 Horse Power, Briggs & Stratton, Industrial Cast, Over Head Valve, (engine) - Hydraulic drive (transmission), Model #42913X5B (I must search under - Briggs & Stratton (formerly Murray) - as the manufacturer, when I search for replacement parts for my mower) When you do order common replacement belts for the mower deck blade drive, and the transmission motion drive, (which I suggest you have spares), record the part number and the measurements, such as width and total length of both belts. (Make, Model Number, Part Number) Murray 42" S/D - L/T - 14.5 B&S IC OHV – HYDRO Model #42913X5B Part number: 37x87MA = Belt, V-Belt - Motion Drive - Murray # 37X87 = 7/16" x 97.5" Part number: 37x88MA = Belt, V-Belt - Blade Drive - Murray # 37X88 = (I don’t know?) And make a copy of your owners’ manual. Also download and save to a CD disc, all the information you can find on your mower, using its model number. It will be invaluable, when it comes time for some repairs.

    I was not expecting to cut my grass in March. By April the grass was knee high. This came directly to my house. One tire was flat but the instructions were easy to ready and I had it going about 30 min. after the movers dropped it off in my driveway. It cut the grass very well even the really high grass. Good mower for the price.

    this is a good mower, gets the job done and we have very rough and rolling lawns, it is a good price and we are satisfied with it, if you are a short person, this mower has a long reach for the clutch brake, but, you can reach it by stretching out your leg. it runs very well, and cuts excellent. we have a lot of lawns to do and so, we are satisfied with the shipping time and the cost of the mower. Murray is a pretty good mower, at least for the first few mowing time we have done.

    On the 30th of March, 20131 I bought the Murray 155-42 riding mower, it was shipped in a fairly decent time, and was delivered new in the shipping crate. It was easy to prepare for service, and the first time I used the mower it performed as expected, cutting 1.4 acres in about 50 minutes. I parked the mower, covered it, and the next time I used it, about 10 days later, I had to jury rig the air intake valve with a piece of wire, as the engine would not run without holding the air valve open, after it warmed up, the engine ran well. I started mowing the yard, and on the first pass of my terrace, the transmission locked up, and would not go forward nor backward. I hoisted the tractor, could not find a belt that slipped or any other visual problem. I lowered the tractor and it worked properly. I cut the lawn in about 50 minutes again. then I went to the garden to clear the path, which was a bit hilly but not extraordinarily. The transmission or it's linkage jammed, and I have not been able to get the mower to move again. The engineering of this mower is pathetic. Tolerances for the linkage to properly operate were not allowed. The Briggs and Stratton engine's carburetor is in need of redesign, it should not be necessary to pin the air valve in the open position to get it to run. This product should never have left its Research and Development stage and should have been built by a more reliable source. The workmanship on this product is atrocious. Go buy something else. Thank God, I bought a 3 year warranty.

    Not a real Murray...Briggs sold the Murray name/rights to MTD. This mower is built to fail. Might last 2 yrs if you keep it in a garage. Metal is way to thin on it. Dont hit a stick while mowing it may go through the deck. Dont waste your money.
