Advantages: Easy to handle & empty
Disadvantages: None noticed after a cou[ple of cuttings
I purchased my first Champion self propelled lawn mower at a Focus store at the end of August last year.I have a large lawn which is approx.50x30yds.Having assembled the Champion I put in the required amount of oil & sufficient petrol to try it out.It started second time & after an initial gush of smoke ran very smoothly.I selected a suitable cutting hight & was very impressed with the quality of "Finish" left by the mower.It ran for about ten minutes & stopped.Checks showed that it had fuel & sparks but it proved impossible to start again.I took the machine back to Focust & it was replaced without fuss immediately.
I assembled the second one(My wife filled it with lead free)& set off again to cut the grass.It performed very well indeed,problem cured!With incredible economy,it cut the lawn two or three time & then stopped dead again!The tank was about one third full & once again plenty of sparks were present.It remained dead untill it occurred to me that maybe the tank wasn't being completely used up.Refilling the tank cured it & it started immediately.The one I returned as faulty probably had the same trouble!Now I am quite happy to keep plenty of fuel in it,it seems to use less petrol than my antique cigarette lighter!
Anybody else had this trouble?
Summary: Easy starting-extremely economical-Not too noisy
