Are these any good? .... I thought they made Hammers and Nails.... lol

murry bad? hahaha im clueless on these lol
Strictly once a week homeowner stuff.
Well im currently borrowing one and very much to my surprise its cutting like a damn dream, its a 26'' w/b, of coarse its no commercial mower but it cuts better then any damn homeowner lawn mower ive ever used, also ive only had good experiances with my Murry mowers, iv'e been cutting my lawn with a murry mower since i was 8, now im 18 and my dad still uses the same mower and it hasnt had to have been repaired once.... to me thats amazeing.....
That often???? lol
I have to say, I started with a s/p Murray a long time ago and it cut well and was built like a tank. I sold it to my brother after a season or two because it's only flaw was it wasn't fast enough. But that was only because the pulley on the drive system was too small.
I like the fact that the Stanley is a 26" swath with direct drive, unlike the unwieldy looking brands that wide. And keeping it simple keeps it cheap. Fine if you just need a backyard gate mower from time to time and not a full time mower.
I'm curious what range of cut height it has and if it's got a decent drive system.
It's not direct drive. It has a less than reliable motion drrive system where a small pin catches on a small gear that drives a larger gear attached to a plastic drive wheel with 3 self -tapping screws right into the plastic. Its not up to even home owner use. I think it's discontinued and the leftovers were liquidated at small engine warehouse.
