This hand pushed mower excels at its job. It is a very basic hand mower. It has little to no amenities. It is just a push mower designed to be inexpensive and be used to mow small yards. Performance I have used this mower for three years and it has always started for me. I change the oil in the fall before I put it away for the season. In the spring I replace the spark plug and sharpen the mowers blade. Handling It goes where I push it. It is not very heavy and my twelve year old son can safely use it. Durability I have used it for three years and never had it break down. Safety It has discharge shield and engine cut off at the handle. It is very safe. Ease of Use Check the oil level, fill it with gas, and pull the starter cord, then enjoy your lawn mowing. The push mower does not self propel so enjoy a light workout. Engine Power For basic lawn mowing and grass that is not overgrown it mows perfectly. The engine can handle it all except for tall grasses.
