    Today i was mowing a yard, and the home owner came outside an asked me if i could haul away a blown up lawn mower for her so i went and looked at it and said sure.. i pulled the pull cord once and it wasnt locked up.. when i brought it home i changed the oil and put some gas in it. First pull it started up.. then went and got some purple power and looks like it just came out of the show room.. Let me know if u know anything about it. All i know was is that it was a pain in the a$$ to change the oil u had to take a plate and rease a spring.. THanks

    I have the same one . That is a good mower.

    BTW I dont know if you saw the other post I left for you. I passed you around 1:30 in Richmond Hill last saturday. It looked like you were pulling into a mower shop. Your truck and trailer look better in person than in the photo.

    Are you sure you grabbed the right mower? :) That thing looks pretty good.

    that's a good mower. the newer ones i know are giving probs. but to change the oil you dont need to pull the belt guard off and take the drain plug out. all you need to do is lay the mower on the left side and let the oil drain out of the dipstick tube. i know a lot of people would disagree with this but the self-propel/push mower department at the shop i used to work for was my department and i was told by briggs reps that it's ok. and it does get all of the old oil out. just make sure you change it while it's hot so the oil drains out easy. that's a damn good freebie by the way :)
