Had to purchase a new lawn mower for the start of the season. After looking at various options, selected this model based on the cost and the wheels. I knew I did not want a mower with the larger back wheels and it had to be self propelled. Brought this one home, took it out of the box, tightened the handle, filled the oil and gas and pulled and it started first time. The only issue that I have found at this time is that when you pull the mower backward, the plastic safety guard at the back folds under the mower making it difficult to pull backwards. I know my old one had this same feature, and eventually it will tear off. I know that I could remove it as it is only screwed in to the back of the mower, but will let it serve it purpose until it wears out. In addition, the other issue that I have encountered is when you get the front wheels caught in or near a bush and tug or pull to get the mower out, the adjustatble wheel heights will slip out of the position that they were in and you have to re-set them to the desired position. Our house sets on a lot and half and I can get it mowed in about one hour using this machine.
