Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great motor/ cutting but... Just got this mower and I ran it for the first time. For cutting it's a great mower. I found a few issue with it. The pull cord fetches up when I try to start it. It will work fine after a few for pulls bit it got annoying. Will reserve judgement after a couple of more uses. The throttle system is horride. The drive bar is under the handle bar so I have to reach under and grab it with my thumbs. It makes for very awkward operation. Not to mention difficult to maintain a variable speed as some areas can't be used full speed. This could be tweaked by shortening up the bar so smaller hands can work it... Now my daughter has a legit reason to not run the mower. The front wheel drive is a love/not so love thing with me. The love part is when I need to go uphill, is awesome. Downhill? Naw. When in at a level ground situation, great, angled areas will tend to lift the front wheels as well as plow into the ground. If I lose a little control, it's good because it won't runaway which I like. The under carriage washing system worked pretty good. If you have major clumped up grass gathered, it doesn't work that great, but if you are a weekly mower, this will be fine. The hits hit well. The misses, I can live with to the most part personally. I'll leave that to you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lawnmower! Very happy with this lawnmower and service from the ordering to the free doorstep delivery. The only issue I have is that the orange plastic piece that covers the top does not clip on very well and has come off while mowing. No big deal though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful mower Has lots of power and a large gas tank, which is nice because I don’t have to fill it so much. I have a large yard. Nice to have a self propelled lawnmower. Easy to handle too.

I bought this mower last fall from Home Depot Ajax. After using couple of times last year, it sat idle in winter. Now I want to use it again and I put the new gas and oil, checked spark plugs which look fine, however, it does not start.

Asked by: Hass
Thank you for reaching out. Engine starting difficulties after storage are often the result of stale fuel in the gas tank and carburetor. Untreated gas can cause gum/varnish buildup in the fuel system in as little as 30 days, preventing it from getting to the cylinder. Start with a fresh tank of high-octane ethanol-free fuel using a quality stabilizer like STA-BIL® or StarTron® . If the unit fails to start after off-season storage it may require a carburetor cleaning, contact us at 1-800-668-1238 or use the authorized service dealer locator at https://www.columbiaequip.ca/ServiceCentres for assistance.

I have this lawn mower and I am going to use gas conditioner before storing it for the winter. What is the fuel capacity of the gas tank, so I can determine the right blend?

Asked by: wendy2shoes
Have never used gas additive to store, find it easier to run it dry, when I have forgotten to do this have found it starts up easily in the spring, best mower I have ever had.

Is the self-propelled speed variable

Asked by: jaclam1
Thank you for your question. This maneuverable front-wheel drive mower offers a single fixed speed that engages smoothly when the lower handle bail is squeezed.
