Good if you know what to watch out for.
I bought this last year. It worked fine; started on the first pull every time. I have a medium-size, level, suburban lawn. The plastic wheels haven't been a problem. First use this year the mower wouldn't start. This is where you need to know something about small engines. The spark was good. I removed the float bowl from the carburetor. It had a bit of water and some rust in it. I've heard that ethanol can cause this. Also gas tanks left empty or partly filled over the winter are subject to frost or condensation inside. So I cleaned out the float bowl and blew out the carb with compressed air. Voila! It once again starts on the first pull.

It was a lemon.
The model quit cranking after just a few months and only about 7 or 8 lawn mowings. We have spoken with customer service, and they will not cover the repair or replace. I will not purchase this brand ever again.

Best Push Mower for the $$
I shopped all the sub $300 push mowers out there before landing on this one. Rugged deck, big rear wheels, easy height adjusters and a powerful B&S engine make this a great value.
You can spend upwards of $500 for other hand mowers including those with the Honda engine, but for my bang-for-the-buck, this mower's the way to go. No more lasts as long as you want it to simply because of the nature of its use. This Husqvarna model will give you 6-10 years of solid service.

DO NOT BUY THIS - HUSQVARNA DOES NOT STAND BEHIND IT
Only used this a handful of times, and it quick. Repair guy said the carburetor needs a $120 tune up !!! That's half the cost of the mower. Said caused by ethanol in gas, but no where in manual does it say to use an additive on no ethanol fuel Spent hours on the phone with Husqvarna and they will do nothing. Only a few months old. I will never buy another Husqvarna product again.

Turns on everytime
Requires minimal maintenance. Turns on with 1 pull. Runs smoothly and doesn't choke up on thick grass. Sturdy, quality construction. Quality motor. Provides good options for mulching, bagging or side discharge.
