What experts liked
If you don't have a lot to spend but want a self-propelled mower, this reasonably-priced model offers a lightweight build, fairly easy start, simple height adjustment and decent mulching ability.
- BestReviews
It has further excellent features of a side discharge also have other options of mulching capability to accommodate your lawn requirements. This is the lightweight model which weighs pounds and it has two years limited warrantty which is a nice bonus to have.
- Consumer Expert Reviews
July 26, 2018 | Full review
The 72lb frame is quite reasonable for a gasoline-powered machine, and the 8x8-inch wheels help to keep it maneuverable without too much difficulty. It’s also worth mentioning the budget price tag, which coupled with the overly-positive design and functionality aspects, make this our recommended budget mower.
- Outdoor Ideas
The bagging mode is pretty useful for a lot of people. In this mode, instead of spreading the clippings and leaving it to decompose, the clippings are collected in a bag or removable catcher.
- Verellen Home Comfort
Lightweight, simple to start, and handles extremely well on hills and difficult terrain.

What experts didn't like
Though it's definitely worth considering if you want a good deal, it doesn't have any fancy features and the 159cc isn't deal for large yards. The build isn't heavy duty and grass occasionally gets jammed in the discharge opening.
- BestReviews
Unfortunately, the mower lacks a grass catching bag.
- Outdoor Ideas
Sometimes, the chute guard does not stay on properly and this lawn is a bit noisy.
- Verellen Home Comfort
Chute guard doesn’t stay on very well. This has a tendency to suck up the detachable discharge chute.
