"Effective lubrication"

So, other mowers have INeffective lubrication? I think the peeps writing the description were running out of stuff to say, "cheap" mower.

I was laughing at that too. Effective lubrication system??

Functional blades.

Straight handle mechanism.

Wheels roll clockwise and counter clockwise.

Fully contained rear bag that holds grass.

Adequate steel deck.

I've never purchased a lawnmower before. Is this one any good?

Was looking at picking one up, but for my area, I'm looking at waiting until ~June 25th for delivery for either home delivery or in-store pickup. Anyone else seeing anything similiar?

Hi All,
Just bought one; Kohler has a good history; nowadays the engine could be made in Italy of China.. but Kohler is into industrial engines, gas and diesel; I would trust them as much as B&S..

Effective lubrication; possibly meaning 'forced' lubrication vs 'splash' like some older ones..

Still in the box; saves me re-building my old second hand one..
Cheers,
Rick

What is the return policy on this one? Restocking fee?

I have a 7 year old craftsman based on a Briggs 6.5HP. Stalls after getting hot, refuses to restart. Already replaced the plug and filter, and pulled the carb and cleaned everything.

I'm guessing it's a bad coil, which is going to cost $80-$120 to take in and get fixed, with a 2-4 week backlog right now.

Should I just order and think later???

Go to Canadian Tire and purchase some Sea Foam and pour some in and run your mower. It should clean the carb and engine.

Had an 9yr old B&S 5hp Craftsman that I couldn't get started when I tried today. I had recently replaced the spark plug and filter so I didn't bother to try anything else and just went for this deal. Not worth fighting to get an old one going if I can get a new one for this price. Thanks OP!

How many HP's is this thing?

I don't understand why there isn't a standard? Why some say CC, some say HPs?

Sounds like the correct diagnosis from here, so WTH - pull the trigger! Then, buy the part yourself when you have time, fix it and have a spare mower!

Never know when the zombies may attack, and all your chainsaws are broken down, you'll be glad to have a spare mower at hand.

Wondering the same thing. Mine was set to arrive June 2nd. Called customer service twice and was told that these have not yet left the manufacturer. They were unable to provide an ETA either.
