    Chassis is cheap and nasty

    published

    Years ago we had a little bob lawnmower which seemed to go for ever. Years later when we needed to buy a new mower we decided on a big bob, thinking it would be like the little bob we had. We have had it for about 4 years now, but probably after 2 years the frame started to fall to bits. Every time we mow the lawn lately part of the frame snaps. It has been welded everywhere, one welder said it was real cheap steel, which was useless and definitely inferior. Next thing is to see if we can pickup a frame to take the motor. The place where we bought the mower does not deal with them anymore, seems like cutting costs has really ruined what once were good mowers, avoid

    An update on the Big bob mower, we finally just gave up on it and took it to the tip. Ended up buying some $200 mower from masters, and have had no trouble.

    Just what's needed for the job, but chassie not robust enough

    published

    Honda motor one of the best smooth and quite, but chassie is not robust enough, lower handles crack and brake at first rear mount point on chassie, weak wheel axles bend easy poor quailty wheels, we run 4 mowers and all are the same disappointed for the money, need to improve.
    GYC and Allpower have been very helpful and has repaired under warranty

    Big Bob Series

    Can someone tell me if the Big Bob and Little Bob have pressure oil lubrication method or splash method? I can't find this information anywhere and the dealer near me didn't know either. I have some steep sections on my block and would like to know prior to purchase. Sue
