I was amazed that it was as easy to push as my self propelled mower, and even easier to steer! Plus it is lighter (65 pounds), so it is easier to transport or store. I have not tried it yet on my sister's BIG hill, since that is 32 miles from home.

It's not hard if you go sideways and not up and down. My front yard is a hill and it works well. Also it is not as easy as a self-propelled mower...a self-propelled mower will go by itself with or without you!

answer 6
This unit is not self propelled so you are required to physically push the unit. The large wheels do make it easier to naviagate rough and or uneven terrain. That being said self propelled takes much of the work out manually pushing the mower as well as adding significant cost to the unit.

The standard mower warranty from Murray is 2 years (or 45 days for rental or commercial use). The standard engine warranty from Briggs and Stratton on the series 500 motor is 2 years (or 90 days for commercial use). I don't know if WalMart offers any optional extended warranty.

Below is taken off the Wal-Mart website. It explains what the extended service plans consists of.

Walmart Extended Service Plan

We offer extended coverage on your product for an additional 2-3 years after the manufacturer's warranty expires. The Walmart Care Plan (our extended coverage plan) includes 100% of the repair or replacement cost, with no hidden fees.
To get a Care Plan, just add an eligible item to your cart and you'll be prompted with a choice of how many years of coverage you want to add.

• Normal wear & tear
• Electrical & mechanical failures
• Power surges
• Heat, dust, humidity & other environmental factors

Question

Is the handle height adjustable?

I recently bought the Murray 20" push mower ($138) and had to return it to Walmart because the handle is too long for me and not adjustable. I'm 4'10" and the top of that mower's handle almost reached my shoulders. My local Walmart has none of the lower priced mowers in stock so I can only go by the photos and info provided online. Someone previously posted a question about this mower's handle adjustability but there were conflicting responses ( 2 said yes and 1 said no) Please, does anyone know for certain if this mower's handle height can be adjusted?

answer 5
My Murray 22 inch High Wheel mower ($168) came with the economy 2 position handle, which is 39-1/4 high at the top of the handle. It can be adjusted (by removing 3 bolts and two cotter spring clips) to a lower position, 38-1/2 inches at the handle top. Not a big change, but some help.

Murray also has 2 models of 3 position handles, EZ and QUICK, which I assume come on higher price models. How to adjust them (all 3 models) is in my owners instruction manual.

Yes, the handele can be released to fold down, and the two twist knobs by the base of the handles can be removed so the handle collapses onto the top of the engine for off season storage. Just like it was packed into the shipping carton.
