Welcome to my listing. I have owned this self propelled mower for about three years and am only selling it because I have purchased a larger one. It has 17 cutting blades, a ready starting engine (usually on first or second pull from cold) and I have replaced the metal fuel tank with a plastic unit which has an integral filling filter (removable) and a great quality fuel tap which does not leak. This cures the usual smell of fuel if you leave it in the garage. It had a service and the blades ground and set at the end of last season and I have genuinely used it twice this year. It has a durable plastic grass box and is ideal for a larger lawn. It is used, and has the usual knocks, scrapes and touched up paint, but it is a heavy made machine that will give you that super striped finish. If you have any questions, please mail me.
