This is a solidly engineered product that performs well and should last a long time. It is the mower you want to buy if you want a product that meets expectations and does not have a lot of extraneous bells-and-whistles that only cause trouble in the long run. I use it as a trimmer on a lot larger than one acre and this mower had no problem taking down 24" field grass and dandelion weeds, it is easy to push and pull even on uneven terrain, and cuts just as well pulling and pushing. Best of all, it runs forever on a tank of gas, after about an hour of continuous use, the small gas tank is still half full, and that's after a lot of hard work cutting down tall grass. So far it is easy to start, stop, and maintain, everything is explained clearly in pictures and words in the very well done manual. There is no assembly required, the handle is made to fold and unfold for storage which is done with big easy to use wingnuts. The height of cut is easy to adjust by rotating levers on each wheel to the desired height and the they snap into detents so no adjustment is necessary. They also supply 1 pint + 2 ounces of the SAE 30 engine oil required. The only tools you'll ever need to use and maintain the mower are a screwdriver for the oil port dipstick and a small funnel to put oil in the engine if necessary. In operation the mower is easy on the hands, next to no vibration, as quiet as a gasoline engine can get, and minimal exhaust. I will certainly look to Murray for other lawn care machinery should the occasion arise. And thanks to WalMart for offering another great product at a great price!
