I was really excited when I purchased this lawn mower, as it was lightweight and had a Honda engine on it. However, after the stress of cutting wet, heavy grass and constantly having to clear the grass clippings chute between the deck and bag, I started to get really frustrated and realized I had made a bad investment. Whenever there is a significant amount of stress on the engine, a plastic safety pin inside the engine breaks, and requires you either to take the engine apart to replace it, or take it to a mechanic. I tried replacing it myself first, but since it was works in conjunction with the pull cord, it does require special tools to install it that I would have to purchase. Therefore, I took it to a Honda small engines mechanic to fix it. I traded the mower for one that was recommended. I would NOT purchase another mower that had a Honda engine on it.
