Ok, the one I bought a year or two ago had the bigger wheels in the back. Aside from that, same machine.
I was looking for a simple mower I could use when needed and put away. I didn't want to pay a lot for power wheels, bells whistles and so on.
I was worried about the plastic wheels but they are solid. The bag is easy to use. This thing starts every time. Mine came with a bottle of engine oil too.
The main area over the blades is cast iron so it's heavy, i wouldn't want to put it into a car trunk and pull it out later.
For the price, this is one of the best push mowers you could buy. When I bought it at Home Depot (it was in the store) it was among the cheapest. Anyways, it doesn't have any bells or whistles but it is solidly made and dependable, just what is needed.
Pros: Cuts Well, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight, Durable, Powerful, Great Engine, Mulches Well, Long-Lasting

No, I do not recommend this product.
The mower does a good job but will not start after shutdown until it's had 10-15 minutes to cool down. With an automatic shut-off, that means stopping to remove an impediment results in a 15 minute delay before you can continue.

No, I do not recommend this product.
This machine is a piece of junk. The engine has fallen apart piece by piece. It's been fixed four times at a shop. The arms for the carb fall out of their holders and get lost. The spring for the rope rewind jumps it's holder. Not worth the effort for the price
Cons: Not Durable

This mower is great value and is built well. The Briggs and Stratton fires up every time and has all the power one needs. I just wish the height adjustment were in small increments.
Pros: Cuts Well, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Powerful, Great Engine, Mulches Well
