This lawn mower operates well. However, there are two issues that, had I known about them, I probably wouldn't have bought this mower. (Issue - 1) I like to sharpen my lawn mower blade before each use. The door on the back of the mower (the one you have to lift to install the grass catcher) is so long that it's difficult (but not impossible) to lift the mower by tilting it back to access the blade. A backward tilt avoids spilling oil and/or gas. (Issue - 2) To change the oil, the old oil must be siphoned out. There is no drain plug on the bottom of the motor. Again, difficult but not impossible. My old Murray lawn mower (190cc Briggs & Stratton), which I also purchased from Walmart, was much easier to maintain and cheaper. It just didn't have a grass catcher.
