    My dad has a murray 22 inch mower with a briggs 6.0 HP motor. It also has FWD, and Electric Start. IT SUCKS. the FWD has no effect when the mower is tilted back, and nevertheless, it is slow. What do you think?:realmad:

    Shouldnt this be in the homeowner forum?

    That piece of equipment is not even close to a commerical unit.

    Heck, I have two trim mowers, one is a snapper high vac and the other is a 22 murray. The murray has a bunch and I do mean a bunch of hours on it and it still works. Not proud of it but that dang thing has made a bunch of money.

    So profitable, yet I gave mine a sledgehammer adjustment in my driveway one day when it wouldn't start.

    The next week a chunk of shattered aluminum from the engine cut the sidewall on a brand new tire on my Bronco. :mad:

    I have seen that video :D It has been awhile , but isnt it a red mower (cant remember brand name) with a yellow engine? If it is then thats the one I saw, and there is actually two vid's of it being blasted. One with the ak-47 and one with some other type of gun. The best part is that the mower is running ;)

    I know how you feel! Its fustrating when you cant get something started isnt it? Really fustrating when it wont start and your working on it, but cant figure it out. I was messing with an old Crapsman trimmer that was that way, and my parents pulled in the driveway right as i had it over my head by the string head slamming the engine onto the driveway :D Hey it made me feel better! LOL

    ithink u need to keep it cause they have little, used value. its just made to do a certain job,and sounds like it will do that.
    imho it needs to be used by someone needing exercize, or what ever.
    not much of a lco type machine imo.
    but ive never owned have a similar machine that i use to mow my dads grave . dont even know what make it is ,but a 4.5 briggs motor. perfect to thro in the truck for the 80 mile round trip
    every 2 wks.
