The drive spline inside the right wheel has worn down to a point the drive sprocket does not engage the wheel to move the mower forward the left side is perfect as you will see in the attachment

mower given to me by brother (i fix mowers as a hobby business) . inintially , i refused to take it. it was the most hideous abomination of a mower i had seen to date. IT looks ridiculous. Just pushing it, it is EXTREMELY cumbersome and unwieldy. it wasnt running, so i thought to take a look. Tedious to work on. will probably end up getting it going. Thing belongs in a museum. Or back to the void from where it began. This thing never should of seen the light of day. Absolute disgrace to manufacture and design. I have seen victa 2 stroke go for 40 years. This thing looks like it would last barely 1. DO NOT BUY!!

Purchased for $0.

I have found with the Ferrex 173 cc mower that I have to mow the grass twice as the mower or the blades do not do a good enough cut with just one mow

Good value

published

A few small build quality issues - e.g. one of the wheel covers falls off occasionally. However, when you compare the price to what you get it's easy to see it's a good deal.

Purchased in September 2021. First problem was the height adjustment not holding its position due to very thin metal on position notch section. Finally had to tie the lever in place with electrical cable to stop it moving. Now the self-propelled drive is not working. Checked with local authorized repair outlets and was told at least 5 weeks delay to inspect and service. What do I do while I'm waiting for the repair ?

The self drive crapped out in about a month.
Don't bother with this garbage. Go with something decent over this pathetic excuse for a lawn mower.
You'd be better off buying some scissors.

It seems I flushed $300 in toilet. Who gives certificate to sale this product. He/she deserves to be flushed in toilet too.
Lots of white/blue smoke at first session of using. It also doesn't fill the catcher. It's a piece of rubbish.

garbage lawn mower

published

Motor locked up after less than 2 hours use, unrepairable. Should not be allowed to put junk like this on the market. Aldi should be ashamed of it self for selling garbage like this. People who make this crap should be put in jail.

Purchased at ALDI for $299.

Do Not Purchase This

published

Who ever created this is stupid as hell. The doesn't even assemble properly. So much for being smart you made it 10x harder to use then $1200 lawn mowers. This garbage ain't even worth it. Within minutes, the mower completely stops and gets jammed.

Ferrex 161cc with 18inch cut

published

I have the 161cc ferrex and I'm sorry to say NOT HAPPY. It uses more oil than fuel, unable to use on my buffalo grass with the front of the deck so low . Its like a bulldozer. Its has no decompression valve, so starting this mongrel is , well not easy. Noticed the governor not working i think from new. It's a all rounder pain to use. I'll never buy another. Aldi at taree
