Great mower fornthe price
Quality build framework, although the briggs&stratton motor, is reliable as expected, although the 550ex has only enough power to cut regular cut lawns. Thick grass, or slightly wet, motor struggles and becomes a tedious task with regular catcher emptying required, to prevent engine stalling..

Very decent mower
This is a fantastic mower. Professional gardener and have been using it for two years now about 3 to 4 days a week. I also use a larger/ heavier Honda mower for certain flat areas and a more refined cut.
I feel with this mower it is a close to perfect balance between power/ cut and weight. I use this mower where I have some hills though will still give a good cut on flat area.
It is quite a versatile mower too as I often mulch up garden waste with it to help before I put it on the compost.
This mower gets thrown in and out of my van multip...le times a day, so the chassis build quality is very good too. In the two years of use I have one broken wheel clip ($2 from mower shop to replace) and one of the plastic clips on the catcher broke (which I fixed with a small piece of wire). I do a full service of it about once a year. Use of full synthetic oil and occasionally use 98 fuel makes it run really clean.

Questions & Answers
Drive not working
I have a Masport 2000 President. The back right wheel hass come away and I gave, hopefully all the parts. I want access to a instruction book to rest the wheel. Any ideas where to get one?
