In March 2008, after buying my first home, I chose it was time to own a lawnmower. Due to the fact that we just have actually approximately 1/4 acre of grass, it was made a decision that an easy press mower would certainly suffice. After strolling into my neighborhood Wal-Mart, I surprised to see exactly how lowly priced the "weed eater" models were compared to other more well known brands. I was at initially nervous to pay just over $100 for a lawn mower (when I was expecting to spend at least $200), yet ultimately offered it a shot.

You are watching: Weed eater briggs and stratton 500 series


A year later, I could not have been more pleased through my decision. After reading the hands-on and adhering to the operating and maintenance procedures to the letter of the legislation, I have had a complete of zero troubles through my supposed "cheap" lawnmower. And guess what? It cuts my lawn every time I need it, and it has been trusted. The mower is easy to run and it usually starts within the initially two or three pulls of the begin cord. Tbelow is a lever before wbelow you have the right to change the reduced height and also tright here is a side discharge. The mower is reasonably little and quickly storable. I will say, on the negative side, that occasionally the mower is quite difficult to rotate because the wheels are basically simply rotating pieces of tough plastic (which I discovered sort of strange). Also, it vibprices at a decent clip and it does not have that much “power”The just foreseeable difficulty is the blade needing sharpened ultimately. Tbelow is basically a big single blade that rotates so make sure you remove any kind of tough objects from the lawn to prevent bfinishing the blade, which I might check out perhaps happening. All-in-all, this is a really financial mower, perfect for someone on a budget or has an extremely tiny lawn to reduced. Make sure you properly keep the equipment and also you will acquire your moneys worth from the Weed Eater brand also mower! Happy Mowing!!!!

Has lasted 17 years so far! by: James C. Our 500 series Weedeater 21" press mower (basically a Poulan Pro) has lasted over 17 year for us so much. It is on it"s second blade and second carb develop, and also maybe it"s fourth or 5th ignition plug, however the remainder is all original and except for a slack bail cable which I opted to relocation, nopoint else has been replaced or added in that amount of time. The knobby tires still have actually 33-50% of their original treview and despite lots of use and innumerable 180 degree turns the whole machine rolls rather right and also true and vibration free.The levers to raise and reduced the deck elevation all still function well, though I had to tack weld among the rear notched plates a year earlier. Our yard is between a 1/4 and 1/3 acre edge lot and though we have a secondary mower for bagging and mulching, this is the one we use a lot of, and also it has been a wonderful mower for us; constantly starts on first pull or two after priming, and runs trouble complimentary at top torque.Maintenance has been incredibly easy and the B&S Quantum engine is still amazingly solid and trouble free; compression is still fine, original starter and also cable are simply fine. there"s a small oxidation on the muffler but it"s not notably loud or louder than any kind of of my neighbor"s lawnmowers. I changed the spark plug _almost_ eextremely time I readjusted the oil, so through treatment and TLC and also the use of a vwey small amount of Lucas Oil Stabilizer I can quickly get three cutting seasons per oil readjust, which is a couple hundred running hours for us.I really do not understand also the really bad reviews here; some do not seem actual to me, which is what triggered me to short article around our li"l green mower. All I have the right to say is "sorry around your luck, folks"- however then aget, world have the right to actually make their very own luck, good and also poor luck, via their habits and also options. We are a typical household of four in a typical community in Columbus, Ohio, and our endure through our Weedeater 500 mower has actually been an excellent one overall; I"d truthtotally give it a B+ and also realistically mean it to last one more four years or even more, prior to oxidation takes its toll on the steel and also steel deck, and the tires bald or wobble and/or the remainder or the plastic components weaken much.Thanks for analysis.

What"s in a name? by: Anonymous The only difference that I deserve to tell from this machine and also others favor it, from the previous and also present is the color and also the name... Take a look around, most machines in this course all have actually the Briggs & Stratton engine on them... The ever reputable, sensible Briggs & Stratton !!!! Probably one of the best designed tiny engines in the human being. The one engine that all others are based upon, whether it be a Poulan. Remington, and so on, and so on.. Take a cshed look at your machine... know it prior to you pull that cord... Don"t fault an engine till you take a look at faulty performance being nothing more than a loosened spark plug, an air filter, factory soaked with oil that is choking the motor, a primer that was not pumped, etc. etc. inspect it out and excellent cutting.............

I"m surprised by: Anonymous Several months back I left a comment around exactly how well my mower works and I"m extremely surprised to view these negative comments. I"m a 56 yr. old womale with 3 expensive dogs fertilizing a 1/2 acre yard, 1/4 acre of which I mow via this mower, big back wheels. The grass in the back (via the dogs) is periodically (often) approximately my knees or even more and it gets through every one of my "hayfield" (although I perform go slowly) with no problem at all. The only trouble I"ve had is as soon as among the dogs tore off the cable handle at the top and also I had actually to have actually it repaired. The mower starts eextremely time, It"s never been tuned up, very same spark plug, although I have added a little of oil a few times. Also, throughout the summer months, this mower stays out in the backyard with a item of plyhardwood over it for defense - I am not nice to this mower. I"m sorry for the difficulties people are having, I simply haven"t watched it with my mower (give thanks to goodness) and also have certainly gotten my money"s worth with this machine.

Too breakable for yard work by: pmiker I bought the high rear wheel variation in late April, 2011. By the middle of June I had mowed the yard twice. It would certainly not mow it a third time. Due to the fact that this was past the 30 day rerotate plan, it can not be went back to the save. They did relocation the plug. I cleaned the air filter per instructions. (In warm soapy water, totally drying, and also oiling.) It ran for about 10 minutes. I had actually to take it in to the repair shop wright here they replaced the plug (again). It shows up that the air filter clogs exceptionally easily. This consequently fouls the plug. The air filter openings are at the bottom of the filter which puts it close to the debris. In this period of drought, mowing is a dusty task.If you save 2 or 3 oiled filters on hand also and have actually the moment to clean them after mowing, this may work out for you. Additionally, this mower might be fine for small, neat, moist yards.If you live in a rural location, execute not buy this mower.

Not happy by: Anonymous I bought this mower at the end of last summer from WalMart. I had purchased my previous mower from tbelow. It was a cheapy also, but had actually functioned excellent, via heavy use, for over 12 years.I have actually had numerous troubles with the Weed Eater mower also though I have actually supplied it exceptionally little bit. (Since it won"t start a lot of the time.) If the leastern amount of dust is stirred up it sputters and dies. Once that happens altering the filter, cleaning whatever and also also altering the gas may or may not make it happy enough to bmuch less me via a couple of minutes of company. I have taken the carburator acomponent and also cleaned it also though it did not appear that dirty. It then functioned for one mowing before it was earlier to the exact same problem. I might not uncover a small engine shop that would job-related on it. I was told these mowers are "junk" and also it expenses even more to deal with them than they are worth.I see it sitting with a $20 tag in my next garage sale.

Great little bit mower for the price. by: Will G. Bought mine at Wal-Mart in 2006. I"ve just had one little difficulty via it, and that was that the ground wire in the shutoff shorted, so think it or not - the mower would certainly not shut off.

To you human being that say this is junk, I will certainly say this: either you obtained a lemon, or you are an idiot that shouldn"t be operating a lawn mower anymeans. As for the comments on it not having actually power, once again you are an idiot. Tright here is a way to idle any type of Briggs and Stratton up for even more power. You just can"t be an idiot. Also, they offer the blades best at Wal-Mart, so I bought an added one. When I relocation the blade I simply take the various other one down to Ace hardware and they sharpen it - it"s all set for following time. As a last comment, if you"re an idiot that doesn"t understand just how to operate somepoint as easy as a lawn mower then you have no company creating a evaluation on it. Idiot.

weed eater lawn mower is junk!!!! by: Anonymous We visited walmart to buy this lawn mower, took it house reduced the grass everything was fine. Took the lawn mower out 1 wk later on and also nothing. Piece of junk would certainly not begin. Not sure probably we had poor gas we drained it took it back and exadjusted it. Had to go thru all the hassle and the second one did the very same specific thing!!! Really dissapointed in Walmart for marketing such junk.

What ever before you carry out stay away from this brand mower! You will conserve yourself time and trouble.

Frankly I am amased Briggs & Stratton would associate their name via this so called lawn mower. Never before aobtain will I buy a piece of equipment from WalMart.

Just a "wimpie" mower by: Anonymous Don"t be impressed by the 22 inch deck or the 500 series engine or also the 2 in 1 side discharge. This mower demands to be tossed off eextremely shelf . I have had actually this lawn mower a tiny less than 4 months and I have had a number of difficulties through it. Some of it may be attributed to "tough use" yet I think it is simply a wimpie mower. The second time I provided it the pull cord damaged. The third time I pull it, the thing breaks! Unbelievable! That have to have been my first clue. A couple weeks later on I pull it out and fill it via gas and pull the cord (exceptionally gently and easily as to not break it again) to begin it ... nopoint, the thing won"t begin. I tried numerous times and also the thing wouldn"t start. I let it sit a while, not wanting to flood the engine, and it still wouldn"t start. Spark Plug. Although these points aren"t expensive, I"ve had actually to relocation the spark plug 8 TIMES! I"d say that is a tiny excessive, wouldn"t you? This mower is a piece of doodie and I don"t recommend anyone to buy it. I don"t also think that it should still be on the market! I called the company and also they sassist that the damages did not loss under the 30 day warranty. I"d favor to know why not. If anyone is looking to buy this mower, DON"T! Its a horrible waste of time, money, and also stress and anxiety. I have currently bought a brand-new lawn mower and also it functions much better! Please perform not buy this Push lawn mower. Its horrible!

Sometimes gets bogged dvery own on taller grass by: Leah Bush My husband and also I bought the Weed Eater 500 series Push Mower around a month earlier and have provided it more than likely 4 times. This mower has actually a 158cc Briggs & Stratton motor, which impressed my husband also for the price. They likewise make the model via larger rear wheels yet we didn’t have actually a require for those. The lawn mower comes preassembled in the box which allows you to start utilizing is immediately (which we did). The just thing you need to do first is pour in some oil, which they administer, add some gas and your all set to mow. It is incredibly basic to usage and also cuts our grass incredibly well. The mulcher appears to job-related really well however we did have actually a problem through the mulching cover on the side of the lawn mower the initially time we provided it yet we have actually considering that figured that out. The blade seems to be holding up really well to our grass and considering the last homeowners never mowed I am exceptionally impressed via that. I haven’t priced a blade for this mower yet however I hope that we won’t require one for a while. The cutting area on this lawn mower is reasonably big which allows you to make fewer rounds if your grass has already been kept. My just complaint is that sometimes it seems to obtain bogged dvery own on taller grass so you need to make even more rounds via it. But I think that will certainly take place via any push mower if your grass is thick.
