Briggs & Stratton has always been a dependable brand in my opinion. While looking for a new push mower, I ran across the Briggs & Stratton Brute 3-N-1 Self-Propelled Mower. I decided that since I had never had problems with the brand that I would indeed give it a try. I bought this mower three years ago and haven't had any problems at all. The mower is really easy to start and it stays running after it's started with no problems. I like how easy this mower is to use and that it pulls itself. The self propelling of the mower makes it so much easier and less tiresome to use. I basically just walk behind and steer where I want to go. I haven't had a problem with the grass clumping up or getting stuck in the mower. I am more than satisfied with my purchase and would like to recommend the Briggs & Stratton Brute 3-N-1 Self-Propelled Mower to anyone. This is a great mower for any size area as well as any kind of yards from flat to hilly.
