After buying a Briggs and Stratton 550 4 stroke mower costing me $400 I thought at least I was getting a good brand mower ,,,well maybe in the past yes , but after the starting cord snapped the problems began ., run down to Bunnings and get a new cord easy , but trying to put on ridiculas ..the cheap bastards have riveted the cord spool attachment on and you can't unscrew it off to simply change the cord .. SO I get the drill out and drill the...

h.kitchener Good luck on finding a "good brand." Most are now made cheaply and are unreliable in so many ways. Probably best to just buy a cheap tool, mower, etc. and when it breaks and y...

I purchased a brand new push mower with a Briggs and Stratton engine from the Home Depot in September 2015. The mower was used MAX 24 hours total run-time.

You would think this would...

Briggs & Stratton need to get it together. How can a new mower go to *** on a small yard so soon. After reading all these reviews I will reject any of Sears offers for replacement. All of the lawn mowers have Briggs & Stratton engines. When you pay 370.00 for a lawn mower...

  • Mower is junk
You run the risk every time you buy used, but when a company sells you a product and guarantees their product, one would tend to take a chance.Jeremy answers the phone sounding completely stoned every time he answers, guarantees his product and I pay shipping for an 80 lb motor. I receive the motor and the exhaust is broken, it looks to have been puking oil for a very long time, from multiple locations. Started it up and the engine smokes like a...
