I have owned many lawn mowers over the years, but the Poulan has outlasted them all. I did buy one bad one that could not be repaired, but the other 2 I have owned have lasted through thick and thin and each one has been in my possession for 10+ years. I would readily buy another Poulan if the one I own now should peter out. I have had nothing but problems from every other lawn mower I have ever bought or owned. I have a large lawn and while I own and use a riding mower for the most part, I do use the Poulan for the front section of my yard because it is slanted and I find it so easy to start every time and it keeps running and doesn't bog down and/or stall out like many lawn mowers do. I even trust my grandson to push it because it is easy to handle and has the safety features I expect for a 12-yr.-old to use it easily. Performance out-performs any other push lawn mower. Handling easy to operate and to navigate around trees, shrubs, pots, etc. Durability it is the toughest in its class. Engine Power powerful, predictable performance.
