“Difficult to start”


written by capad on 04/04/2016

After running and stopping to empty grass box, this mower is almost impossible to restart. Requires to be left until engine has cooled for 15 minutes, then it can be restarted.
Qualcast took machine back for tests, and returned with exactly same fault. They advise that the emissions controls fitted to these machines make them more difficult to start.
Would not advise anyone to buy this model unless you are young, very fit (strong) and able to pull the starter cord many times.
Would also not recommend Qualcast, who eventually took machine back for tests, then returned it after doing nothing.
If buying a petrol lawn mower, I would warn against any with a Briggs and Stratton engine, unless it is an electric start. Apparently their older engines are far superior, as they have no fitted emission controls. My previous mower which was still going strong after 20 years, had a Briggs and Stratton engine, and started on the first pull of the cord every time.
