I have a Kobalt 19" cordless electric. I love this thing. Came with two batteries- one lasts about an hour, the other for half an hour. I can do my entire front/back and trim on a single battery.

The batteries plug into any other Kobalt cordless electric product, from mowers to trimmers.

I'm very happy with it. Starts in 3 seconds, is quiet, and does a great job.



Bought the Kobalt too and so far so good. For a female, injured male or male with female tendencies this is a good mower. Easy to start and super quiet. This isn't for huge yards and im sure the batteries will need replacing but for me its worth it to just push button start.

Get something Honda powered. I have one and its great, starts first pull every time.

I finally changed oil in it after ten + years of ownerships and still runs like a champ... these things are indestructible.

I bought mine at sears on some half price sale as well

I have a 3 year old craftsman, with this one being the current model:
http://www.sears.ca/product/craftsm...000927525-36476

The only problems I have is after a deluge of Calgary rain and the subsequent growth spurt, the B&S can't power through any semi-damp and long grass. It'll choke up between the deck & blade, and you have to reach under the deck and remove it.

Push start is marginal convenience over pull cord.
Desk wash port means I don't have to tip the mower over to spay underneath, and having fuel leak out the cap or flood the engine.
RWD lets me drink my XL Mcdonalds coffee on one hand and pilot the machine on the other.

I have a Ryobi from HD. I have a small lawn, and really enjoy the battery power. 1 battery can do front and back no problems. I would recommend if your lawn is not big, and you dont let you lawn grow too long, can get tougher. I used a manual mower for a couple of years, but my lawn is very healthy now, so went battery. happy with mine. Not heavey, 16" i beleive.

Figured I would bump an old thread rather than starting new. My mower finally kicked the bucket..... and I am sick of dealing with a crappy mower for my large back yard.

My requirements:
- gas- no electric
- ability to run a thatching blade (this might be standard not sure)
- self propelled, my yard is big and kind of sloped a bigger wheeled push model might suffice?
- bagging ability
- would like to spend less than $500

Does anyone have suggestions?

Briefly looked at HD, I cant imagine paying ~$500 for a Toro with a Briggs and Stratton motor. They also had Lawn Boys but not sure if they compare to their predecessors.

I was looking at some of the Husqvarna's at Alberta Forrest and Garden. They are around $500 and have a Honda motor.

Online reviews seem to be pretty hit and miss on mowers in general.

Thanks!

I have this guy I believe - from Rocky Mountain Honda. No complaints other than the mulch setting drops all the clippings right in front of the left wheel rather than spreading them evenly under the deck. Seems to be a common complaint. Itís more of an issue if you donít mow your lawn often.

Iíll never buy another electric mower

There was a actually a funny add for a used one on Kijiji. No idea where you would buy new. Has a Briggs engine..... not sold on that. Although the mower itself is supposed to be great.

Currently trying to decide between:

Husqvarna HU700F and LC221RH- guy at the store couldnt really articulate the difference so need to figure it out myself.

This. If you can shell out money for a Husq with Honda motors, they work awesome.

Use gas with no ethanol, change out oil, spark plug + air filter every two years. 15 year old Craftsman with B+S engine. Still starts on first pull.

Also re-sharpen or replace the mower blade every year.
