OMG, I love this rider. It takes less than 10 minutes to assemble (because I read the instructions). Really, you are just putting the seat on and attaching the steering wheel. The oil was already filled and the battery charged. I put a little gas in it and it cranked right up. I was originally looking for a self propelled mower, but saw this one and realized it would fit through my standard 3 foot fence gate. My Walmart had this as an unadvertised sale $599.00 WOW! The 190cc engine equates to 8.75 horsepower. I was concerned that it might be underpowered for me as I tip the scale at 230 lbs. Nah, it runs just fine. This is easy to drive, comfortable, (with seat adjustments) and mows in reverse. It did read the other reviews and saw that there is no crankcase drain for the oil if you want to change it. Hey, the mower only weighs, 168 lbs,... tilt it... it is not heavy. If you look on Youtube, there are a few videos of the mower. That helped me decide. So far, so good.....

I recently had knee surgery but decided I still wanted to cut my own grass. I have 1/3 acre lot and did not want a large or expensive mower. I spent considerable time searching and reviewing before deciding this was probably the mower for me. Even though none of my local Wal-Marts showed this in stock on line, I found one at my local store, way back in the rear of the lawn and garden department, still in the crate. I hauled it home in a small pick-up, with help from a neighbor. We were able to unload it and I began uncrating it. I had it totally assembled in a little over an hour and was cutting grass ! I was surprised when it started with the first twist of the key. (of course checked oil first-comes with oil already in it). I have always been resistant to a riding lawn mower, feeling I need the exercise...I've changed my mind. It is small enough to store easily and it doesn't use much gas. I don't believe it uses any more gas than my self-propelled push mower. It is surprisingly quiet. I guess you can tell....I love my new toy !

This is my first riding Lawn mower. I did significant research before making my purchase. I wanted a single blade, manual and electric start, etc. All the reviews I read here were accurate about turning ratio, blade not working when in reverse etc. I used it on a yard that was level but not smooth and I think over the long haul the mower will start loosing parts because of the vibration from having limited to no shock absorbers. My biggest disappointment is that my yard is 95% smooth even grass. The blade has 3 settings. The first setting is too high and the 3rd setting is way to low. You are pretty much stuck on the middle level. The mower just doesn't cut a good even way no matter how many times you "recut" an area. My push mower does a much nicer job. If you turn hard or have ANY raised areas it will cut deep into the grass on the low side of the tilt. Again, this is my first riding mower so maybe they all do this.

I had been looking at riding lawnmowers for a few months. When I saw this one it seemed to be the one that would be the right size for my lawn, which is less than a half acre. I had looked at other stores and even though it was the end of the season the price was not marked down. My partner and her mother were shopping and just happened to look in the lawn and garden section of one of our local Walmarts and found this mower on sale. The price was right. Once I got it home, all I had to do was to fill the gas tank, check the oil and it started right up. It was easy to handle and cut the grass wonderfully. It fit through my gate to the back yard with plenty of room to spare. My back yard is on a slight hill and the mower was able to handle the hill in 1st gear just fine. I like the fact that the mower shuts off when you get off the seat. It is a great safety feature. I was impressed. It cleans up easily with my blower. I would recommend this mower to anyone who has trouble walking like I do because of rheumitiod arthritis and an artificial hip.

  • A. hold the brake down while starting, it will not start unless. Also you need to be on the seat.

  • A. The mower blade drive must be off, the clutch must be pushed in before attempting starting. If either is wrong, it kills the ignition system. Otherwise, the starter will turn over the engine, but with the ignition off, it will not start. My new Craftsman 28 inch rear engine riding mower (That replaced my Weedeater one) operates exactly the same way.

  • A. The battery is probably down from lack of use. It starts easily with the hand-pull. Running it will recharge the battery. If you can't pull it, take the battery out and have it charged. It is a small 12 volt battery located under the seat.

The manual specifies lubricants to use for spindles and axles but doesn't mention one for the drive chains. Does anyone have a recommendation for them that will not attract dirt and debris?
by kh38 7/16/2011

  • A. Paraffin wax would probably be good but getting those chains off would be a major job. I found some Du Pont Teflon Chain-Saver spray at Walmart that I will try when putting the mower away this winter. It has lubricating wax, molbdenum, calcium stearate (all good dry lubricants) and a corrosion inhibitor. Cures completely dry and should penetrate into the links. Recommended for heavy duty dirty applications like dirt bikes and ATVs.

  • A. Thanks for the tip to use motorcycle chain oil, I used it many years ago. It left an oily film then but maybe dries more now.
