Question

Gasoline Usage

I have heard that gasoline with ethanol added damages lawn mower engines big time..... Anyone have any knowledge on this subject.

answer 1
The gas will evaporate and leave ethanol deposits that are like a gum. If storing for long periods of time you should run the mower dry first. the carb is the only real issue.
answered 3 weeks, 4 days ago
By
pistol73se
answer 2
It does on certain equipment but I have not had a problem with my Murray at all using gas with ethanol. Having said that, I just paid $50 for a new carb on a gas generator that I bought from another store. I paid for a 3 year extended warranty on the generator and everything was covered except the carb! Read the fine print on any warranty you buy! I will never put ethanol in my rider! The key to using ethanol gas is to run the tank empty when you are through using it! I will also say that I have never run my Murray dry and the carb on it seems to be impervious to ethanol. Its 2 years old and starts right up. Hope this helps.

answer 4
Yes, modern gasoline with the added ethanol can cause fuel related problems. Ethanol absorbs moisture and draws water into the fuel which causes poor performance and over time can harm a small engines plastic components. This is not a problem in cars or vehicles since most are driven daily and fuel is used up or turned more often.
In seasonal type equipment ( mowers/ trimmers/ snow throwers ) fuel sits for long periods of time which allows for this breakdown or moisture problem to occur. POPULAR SMALL EQUIPMENT RETURN ISSUE is caused by bad fuel. Person buys new piece of equipment and then uses old fuel in gas can. Walmart carries many fuel additives or stabilizers that helps prevent this from happening.

Answers
answer 1
There is a very easy to install mulch plug that fits in the side discharge hole (my mower came with the mulch plug already installed). Please know that this is not a super-duper mulching lawnmower. Mine leaves a trail of cut grass that comes out the middle rear of the mower. See my review, where I've attached a photo of this "mulching."

There is a snap in plastic door that plugs the opening in the body leading to the discharge chute. Installs/removes in seconds.

Remove the side discharge chute and then the black flap or mulch plug will automatically fall down and close opening. You are now able to mulch.

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?

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.
