MTD Yard-Man Self-Propelled Mower
I brought this lawn mower about a year ago and it has been great. I use it to cut my lawn and it mulches the grass for me all in one step. It doesn't leave big clumps of grass on my lawn like other mower/mulchers I have had in the past. It goes of sticks and leaves with ease.
It has a great engine. I joke that it's better than my cars. It's self propelled so all I have to do is walk behind it. With this mower there is no need to prime like with others. All you do is pull a leaver, crank it and it's ready to go. Really it does the cutting itself. I just guide. It takes 5W30 so I don't have to buy special oil to use it.
I have a small car and when I brought it, it was very easy to transport because it folds down. It fit perfectly in my trunk. This is great for me because sometimes I cut my moms grass and I have no problem taking it along.
I think the thing that impressed me the most is the fact that after the winter, when I was ready to use it again. I didn't have any problem starting it up. I just did what I had always did, pull the leaver and crank. I didn't have to give it an oil change or change the spark plugs. After sitting there all winter, some of spring and fall, it was ready to cut.
I have had to replace the blade once because I ran into a tree trunk and it bent the blade. I could have had it straightened out but it was easier for me to buy a new one. Eventually I did have the old blade straightened out so now I have a backup.
I brought the mower as a store return item, which saved me about $150. A steal if you ask me. I have yet to find anything wrong with it. I would absolutely suggest this mower. Its definitly the best I have ever had.
