Blown Head Gasket after very little use, can't get replacement parts.

published

Bought from Bunnings, always blew a little smoke when starting,.... no it is not overfilled with oil. Now after two years it fills the whole yard with smoke and is impossible to use without breathing equipment. Turns out it has a blown head gasket. The Briggs and Stratton motor used in this model is not sold in the USA. Local mower shops don't want to know me because I bought it at Bunnings. Contacted Masport to find a gasket, they sent the attached email saying I should contact Briggs and Stratton. Briggs and Stratton said contact your local mower shop. Spent hours trying to get the part. Learn from my costly mistake, DON'T BUY A MASPORT MOWER.

Purchased at Bunnings Warehouse Retail Stores for $489.00.

A good mower, but ....

published

I bought this mower from Bunnings 6 months ago and was initially very happy with it. However if the mower wasn’t used for a couple of weeks, it would blow clouds of blue smoke for a couple of minutes when starting. There was no smoke if I started the mower, say, on two consecutive days. Very frustrating. It ran well once the smoke cleared as you would expect from Briggs & Stratton, but the problem has continued. Something is fundamentally wrong the engine.
Bunnings were fantastic to deal with and were happy to change the mower. I decide to move up to a Honda

Purchased in January 2020.

Great reliable mower.

published

I have only used the mower a few times now, but I am so far very impressed.
It was easy to assemble, and it excellent on fuel, using less than any other mower I’ve ever owned.
Really easy to manoeuvre,.. so far very impressed with the mower.

Purchased in May 2019 at Bunnings Warehouse for $498.00.

Mine was in the box. You might find it already fitted. Once you open up the rear part it’s a semi circle looking piece that wraps around the blades-just makes the cuttings get cut several times by the blades- I find it keeps the dust down too
