Sears is offering $75 in points for on lawn mowers over $200. I bought this mower, received $20 in FreeCash, TCB discount of $11.5, and bought Gift Cards at raise.com saving another $12. I also received $85.45 in rewards.

So if you factor in rewards $1 for $1 (which I know isn't true) my out of pocket on this mower was $223 including tax - $11.5 tcb - $12 raise - $85.45 in SYWR for a total price of $114.05.

I made the DEAL YMMV due to not everyone having same FREECASH and possible difference in SYWR earnings.

The $75 in points works on all lawn mowers (walk behind only I think). I thought this deal was the slickest, but if you would rather have a Honda motor there are more expensive options that Have the Honda Motor

Other options some will fall below if you have over $20 in freecash:

This is a push mower -- NOT self propelled!

Weird name for an engine! Seems like a good deal, though.

I almost bit on this because I need a new mower but this was in the Q&A section: I don't think it's rear wheel drive, just standard push.

Is this mower self propelled?
Hi there. Per L&G expert; Thank you for your question. No, this mower is not showing to be self propelled.

Thanks for that. I could have sworn when I bought it that it was a self propelled model. Shoot. I bought it for a rental property, tenant probably will be less than thrilled! QUOTE=hancerm;112976851]I prefer self propelled but this one is push mower.[/QUOTE]

I want to make the switch from gas but at this price with points it makes it hard. Damn GreenWorks why do you have to be so much!

Engine is rarely the weak point in walk behind mowers like this. Assuming you don't lit ethanol laden gas sit in there all winter. Even in that case, just swap a new carb in and get back to mowin'. For $114 this will be decent bang for the buck if you don't want self propelled.

Agreed. If you use ethanol, the Honda engines can end up hard to start just as a B&S might. I've never had much trouble with a B&S engine.

Interesting, I leave gas in my honda HRR2166VKA mower all winter, every winter, and have never had this problem. But I have had a clogged carb on a generator that my FIL gave me - $13 fix from Amazon for a new carb.

Pretty sure I'm using the 10% ethanol gas like most stations have too. I wonder is it possible my mower doens't have a carb? Or I'm just getting lucky.

The problem with having any ethanol in the gas is that it reacts with water (either in the gas itself or with the water vapor in the air) and creates a sticky sludge that can easily clog the little passages in carburetors, especially small engine carbs.

I believe that this mowers carb is one of those simple plastic ones that is quite susceptible to clogs, however it is also very easy to pop off and clean or pretty cheap to replace.

Also with small engines (weed trimmers, chainsaws, etc), ethanol eventually makes the plastic fuel lines brittle and they fall apart.

I just recently cleaned the plastic carb on this B&S engine after it sat in storage with E10 fuel. Started right up after blasting the crap out of it with carb cleaner.

Here's a good video on how to take it apart

I own this mower and used it last year without any problems. Starts on the first pull everytime. Make sure to keep the blade sharp and drain the gas tank at the end of the season.
